Ryanair is demanding a "clear list of actions" from the Government to tackle drone activity at Dublin Airport.

Thousands of people were affected by three separate incidents over the weekend, with flights forced to divert.

The Transport Minister is set to meet with a range of representatives this evening to discuss the issue.

Eamon Ryan will meet with the DAA, the Irish Aviation Authority, the Department of Justice, and Gardaí later tonight.


Darragh Brady from Ryanair says it shouldn't have taken this long:

"We're very disappointed it has taken four days just to convene a meeting."

Darragh says this has been happening since Friday and the airline and "we never heard anything from Minister Ryan all weekend."

He says this is despite calls for action both on Saturday and again yesterday.

"So what we want to see is a clear list of actions, what exactly is going to be done?"
