Shannonwatch are shocked and dismayed by another cancellation of their room booking for a seminar scheduled for Oct 8th. A number of international speakers are due to attend the seminar on US Imperialism & Militarization 15 Years after the Afghanistan Invasion, but as a result of room booking cancellations by three hotels in the Shannon and Bunratty area, new arrangements must now be made.

The Park Inn and the Oakwood Arms Hotel in Shannon, as well as the Bunratty Castle Hotel all initially accepted bookings for the seminar. Each then cancelled, claiming a mistake had been made. The most recent cancellation by the Bunratty Castle Hotel has come just 3 days before the event.

“It is beyond belief that three hotels would accept a booking and then discover they had no room available.” said a Shannonwatch spokesperson. “We spoke with each of them on more than one occasion. We discussed room layout, audio-visual facilities and refreshments with them. We even provided credit card details as requested. Yet all three cancelled our booking, and were adamant that alternative arrangements could not be made to accommodate us”.

“We have to wonder if the cancellations have anything to do with our opposition to the US military use of Shannon Airport over the 15 years since the Afghanistan invasion.” said the spokesperson.

    1. Thank you for input. I am sure the thousands of readers of this blog will take your intellectual critique into account.
      One question.. How did you find this article? It has been blocked on Google in Europe.. I find that quite interesting.
      Have you read the JTRIG manual yet? It is very interesting and a full copy can be found on the Intercept.com. I suspect you have read it.. We are awaiting your answer with anticipation.
      Many thanks for your response in advance.
      Regards Shaun
      PS do you believe in freedom of speech and human rights in Ireland? Watch and weep! Ireland PLC is going down the drain. The cost will be to local buisness in the long run.. Watch this space..

  1. Shannon airport has an agreement with the US that if you pass security there you can go straight through upon arrival to the US – at least to a NYC. This is probably related. Also, much funding for Irish independence (and unified Ireland) came from the Irish diaspora. I need to look up how many times more Irish are in the US than in Ireland – I’m sure it’s huge. It amazes me more and more each day that Europe doesn’t recognize its own child (the US) nor its own children.

    Also, Ireland allowed use of air space for Allies during WWII, offering unofficial support. To me this beats Switzerland and Sweden which gave support to Hitler with the Swiss shooting down crippled allied planes and imprisoning them in a camp run by an abusive pro-Hitler officer. Also, Swiss railways formed the connection for Hitler between Germany and Italy, then fascist Spain and France. As a consequence the US bombed them and they still have a sign in their little museum complaining that a picture of Luther was burned from bombings by Americans but don’t mention that it’s because they were so close to the railroad and next to a watchmaker that probably made timers for Nazi bombs. The US pretended that it was an accident because it was illegal to bomb a neutral country. The maps show it was no accident and that the bombings were strategic. There is a man on youtube who makes a full-time job of dissing the Swiss and claims the same sort of surveillance you do and even having been thrown in jail in poor conditions. His videos aren’t totally accurate because he hates Switzerland so much he’s lost all objectivity but rather amusing. He’s a white South African.

    1. It’s maybe worth thinking about that Obama comes out of the Chicago political machine (Daley was an Irish American): “The Democratic committeemen of Cook County elected Richard J. Daley as their chairman in 1953 and the Democratic committeemen of Chicago slated him as their mayoral candidate in 1955. He served as chairman for 22 years and as mayor for twenty years.[19][21][22] This was accomplished with the help and support of William L. Dawson.[19] In return, an African-American “sub-machine” led by Dawson was created under the umbrella of the regular machine. In the predominantly African-American wards, Dawson was able to act as his own political boss. He amassed a considerable power base by awarding political appointments to his allies,[23] just as Daley did in the larger machine. However, Dawson’s machine had to continually support the regular machine in order to retain its own clout.[24]” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cook_County_Democratic_Party
