Pigs flying--on Irish airlines!
There's still more evidence of Real Change in northern Ireland...the last vestiges of the British army are packed up and gone, and now Aer Lingus, from the Irish republic, the dreaded south, is getting started in northern Ireland. In another first, AL will make Belfast a hub and provide three daily flights from Belfast to Heathrow, adding to existing flights from Shannon to Heathrow. Longtime rivals-to-the-death Martin McGuinness and Ian Paisley attended the dedication, Paisley looking positively giddy in the background.
