Transport Minister Eamon Ryan is to meet with the daa and the Irish Aviation Authority after yet more flights disruptions caused by drones at Dublin airport.
Flights were grounded for just over 30 minutes yesterday evening after a confirmed drone sighting, some flights were also diverted to other airports.
Dublin Airport itself has called for new legislation and a state agency responsible for technology to counter drones.

Sitting On His Hands
Speaking at Ryanair's Operations Centre in Dublin last night, Michael O'Leary demanded action from the Transport Minister:
"This is the 6th drone closure Ryanair has suffered in five weeks," he said.
Mr. O'Leary said it's "unacceptable" this keeps happening while the Transport Minister "sits on his hands."
Meanwhile Dublin Airport itself called for legislation and a new state agency to manage technology to counter drones.
