Irishman Abroad Podcast – When Can We Fly To Ireland Without Fear?



Podcast recommendations are hard to come by, but one Irish podcast – Irishman Abroad – has stayed consistent over the past 8 years. This week is no exception.

When can we fly home to Ireland without fear? Jarlath Regan and the Irishman Abroad Podcast posed this question to one of Ireland’s most successful aviation pioneers this week, and the answer may surprise you.

Irish aviation innovator and philanthropist Declan Ryan sits down with Jarlath Regan to discuss how to deal with the pandemic and how it will affect our travel. Ryan, who founded Ryanair with his family in the 1908s, has some comforting words for those concerned about returning to Ireland.

This is Declan Ryan’s second appearance on the World’s Greatest Irishman Abroad Podcast. In 2019, he spoke to Regan about his early life, his path from pilot to CEO and the reasons why Ireland dominates the aviation business.

This episode can be found here on Sunday 18th July or here in advance on July 17th.

The Irishman Abroad Podcast gave listeners plenty of food for thought during this week’s extraordinary episodes.
