Flights Diverted Amid 'Challenging' Snowy Conditions at County Mayo Airport

Flights were diverted to Dublin from Ireland West Airport in Knock, County Mayo, on January 27 as parts of the west of the country were hit by severe winter conditions, the airport said on Twitter.

The airport’s Twitter account posted that its operations team was working to clear the runway, and called the conditions “challenging.”
