Independent TDs Clare Daly and Mick Wallace appeared in Ennis District Court today where they were found guilty of two charges of breaching by-laws at Shannon Airport in July 2014.
The pair were fined €2000 each having originally been charged for attempting to make their way to a remote taxiway where two US military aircraft were parked at the time.
Both have raised the issue of US military use of Shannon in the past and have questioned why the Irish authorities don’t search military aircraft.
