We would hope that these issues will be addressed in the National Economic Plan due for publication in November.

They need connectivity to link with their markets from a sales and relationship point of view. While many have adapted as the pandemic has evolved, it’s very hard to replace the human contact element of business. “Shannon Airport is the anchor that enables business connectivity into and out of this region. We would hope that Ryanair’s decision is temporary and as the impact of the virus abates and people have the confidence to travel knowing that health and safety issues and testing, tracing and tracking have been adequately addressed. “We look forward to seeing Ryanair’s base reopen at Shannon in the months ahead and Shannon Airport’s runway’s active with Ryanair and other airlines’ flight movements.   WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener WHILE not entirely unexpected, given Ryanair’s pre-announced intention to do so, Shannon Chamber has described Ryanair’s decision to close its Shannon base for the winter months, as disappointing news for Shannon Airport management and staff, Ryanair employees and the wider region.last_img read more

Eating citrus fruits may increase melanoma risk

first_imgFrequent consumption of citrus fruits like whole grapefruit and orange juice may be associated with an increased risk of melanoma, a type of skin cancer, says a large study.Analysing dietary patterns among more than 100,000 people in the US, the researchers found that melanoma risk was 36 per cent higher in people who consumed citrus fruit or juice at least 1.6 times daily compared to those who consumed them less than twice per week.

Over a follow-up period of up to 26 years, 1,840 study participants were diagnosed with melanoma.  Higher overall citrus fruit consumption (the total number of servings of whole grapefruit, whole oranges, and juices from those fruits) was associated with increased risk of malignant melanoma in both men and women. The association was strongest for grapefruit, followed by orange juice. The study was published online in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.last_img read more
