Ryanair has lost its High Court battle against the government's travel restrictions.

Mr Justice Garrett Simons ruled that the government hadn't exceeded its executive powers or trespassed upon the legislative power in relation to the measures, and had acted lawfully in providing travel advice and public health advice on a non-statutory basis.

Ryanair CEO Eddie Wilson joined us on The Last Word to give his reaction to the ruling and discuss the situation with Cork and Shannon airports.
