It was announced earlier today that next week's strike action would go ahead unless Ryanair management arranged to meet with IMPACT ahead of Wednesday's strike action.

Mr Shanahan, speaking on Ireland's Today FM radio station, added: "They suggested a meeting on Tuesday evening, and again we are happy to do that, but similarly, we are not in a position to consider the stages of the industrial action until after we've met them".
