Solicitor Emma O’Brien, a Director of Clonakilty Chamber of Commerce, has been appointed to a new development board for Cork Airport. The appointment of Emma by Minister Leo Varadkar has come about as a result of lobbying by Fine Gael TD Jim Daly to have a Development Council formed to support the growth of Cork Airport and to include a representative from the West Cork region on the Council.

The purpose of the Development Council is to ensure strong engagement and alignment with key stakeholders in the region ensuring common understanding of the issues, opportunities and operating performance of the airport and to drive coordinated action to further develop Cork airport.

The Council will provide a forum for its members to be informed of Cork Airport activities and for its members to provide timely policy level feedback and advice on matters relating to community and the growth and development of Cork Airport, helping to drive more traffic through Cork Airport on a sustained basis for the benefit of the region as a whole.
