Irish airspace has reopened following a radar problem last night at Shannon Air Traffic Control, which led to the closure of the majority of Irish airspace and the suspension of flights in and out of Cork and Shannon Airports.

The Irish Aviation Authority has reopened Irish airspace and confirmed this morning that flights have resumed at Cork and Shannon airports, while an investigation is underway.

Flights into and out of Dublin and Belfast airports haven't been affected.

At Ireland West Airport Knock, yesterday evening's Aer Lingus flight to Gatwick was cancelled as a result of the incident.

A spokesman for the airport says all flights today are expected to operate as scheduled.
