Printcenter_img Astronaut Al is fondly remembered in Lough Gur Said Hadfield: “I’ve always had an interest in Ireland and Irish culture; hence my tweet As Gaeilge from space.“My daughter Kristin studied for her PhD to Trinity College and my niece Kelly is currently studying at the UL medical school so I have something of a love affair with this place.“I was delighted to be a tourism ambassador for Ireland and that got me to see much more of the country than I could ever have hoped.  That included a trip along the Wild Atlantic Way, which was majestic. One of the most beautiful places I’ve visited.“And now I’m back here at Shannon Airport, the gateway for the Wild Atlantic Way and an airport with its own space links given it was a designated emergency runway for space shuttles, but thankfully was never used as an emergency.”The Space Station star arrived in ahead of the Shannon International Leasing Conference (SILC 2017) that he will speak at tomorrow.  Tonight he performs at much anticipated charity gig in Limerick when he lines out for the Ghana Medical Health fund-raiser in the Clayton Hotel.Looking ahead to his trip, he said:  “It will be short but very sweet. I’m looking forward to meeting Kelly at tonight’s gig and, of course, tomorrow’s conference.“I’m staying at a 15th century castle, Knappogue Castle in County Clare, which will be a great experience also.  Ireland is full of those experiences and it’s great to be back,” he added.Said Rose Hynes, Shannon Group Chairman:  “We were delighted to welcome Chris as he touched down at Shannon.  He’s been a wonderful ambassador for aerospace and for Ireland, and in particular, the Wild Atlantic Way. As the gateway airport for the Wild Atlantic Way, we’re delighted that he will get an opportunity to stay in the area and rekindle his love for the Wild Atlantic Way.”See more news here Facebook Munster tunnel brings big match atmosphere to Shannon Limerick student recognised for fashion design and buisness skills Email WhatsApp Limerick Joy as world’s top referee returns home Finn Bliss of the Shannon Scout Troop, Rose Hynes, Chairman Shannon Group, Chris Hadfield and Dani McGuinness of the Shannon Scout Troop.
