O’Leary V Mannion, Knock Out Showdown Cancelled!
Updated : Jan 14, 2009
The big showdown between the two main boss men of Ireland's aviation giants was cancelled last night.
The battle was due to air on RTE’s Primetime last night but was cancelled after both Michael O’Leary, head of Ryanair and Dermot Mannion, head of Aer Lingus, were advised to do so by the Irish takeover panel!
The two boss men were to go head to head on RTE’s current affairs programme and discuss the takeover bid of Aer Lingus by Ryanair. However, the two men said the took the advise of the takeover panel and decided against the live programme..... Which is really a pity because it would have made great television.
