38 retired Mayo nurses on a return flight to Dublin, which was supposed to take off at 15:15 yesterday, are now on a ten hour journey to Munich airport from Krakow.
The group has had to make arrangements with their travel company and pay for accommodation transportation and an additional flight to get home.
Last night they were ferried between airports in Poland before being told that there would be no flight provided for them until next Thursday.
Ryanair says it's offered refunds or a switch to the next available flight, with some passengers saying they were told it would be late as next Thursday.
Kathleen Clarke is one of the nurses who are currently en route to Munich airport making the long journey home.
