The Inaugural Flight arrives in Cleveland from Dublin, before reloading another full plane and
heading back to Dublin a few hours later.
After much anticipation, Aer Lingus launched their new Cleveland to Dublin direct flight yesterday, May 19th, 2023. It did not disappoint. From speeches, kudos and a few great story swaps, dancers from the Leneghan Academy of Irish Dance, Harpist Tiffany Schaefer – Harp & Song, then the arrival of the inaugural flight from Dublin, and meeting the new crew taking her and the full house of 182 back to Dublin, the anticipation and hope we have all felt for the widespread effects of this initiative have been exceeded.
The momentous occasion brought Consulate General of Ireland, New York @HelenaNolan to Cleveland for the first time. She left full of good vibes about Cleveland, and the Cleveland Irish community.
Helena covers Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Thousands of words …
