From Ed Horgan at Shannon Watch

Easter Sunday morning at 9am United States Navy Lockheed C-130T Hercules 165313 c/n 5383 Fleet Logistics Support Squadron based in Jacksonville, Florida USA is back in Shannon, having been here also on Good Friday, probably having been on a mission to the Middle East in the meantime, delivering troops or other war materials to the killing fields. Once again it is being protected by Gardaí and Irish army personnel. These Gardaí and Irish army personnel should be celebrating the centenary of Irish independence and sovereignty today, except of course that our Government (or so-called acting-Government) have handed over our independence and sovereignty to the United States of America at Shannon airport.
Happy Easter?? Not if one is at the receiving end of the war materials being transported through Shannon airport on this and other US war planes on a daily basis.Shannon Easter Sunday
