We are appealing to the public to be patient and continue to abide by the regulations.” Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA Google+ Pinterest By News Highland – May 7, 2020 center_img Twitter Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Homepage BannerNews WhatsApp WhatsApp News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Google+ DL Debate – 24/05/21 No change to restrictions in Northern Ireland RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more
