It landed on Runway 17 ran full length then did 180 turn .... ATC stating that they are busy with all the ryanair that have landed tonight. Workers on the runway don't appear to be happy .....

Winds still quite strong down in DUB, aircraft starting to land now, British Airways A319 in its way up, Ryanair must just be going to give it a go back in Dublin, calling it night, keep us updated for the morning Aldergrove!

Heard a few early morning departures (2am) wonder if it was Ryanair heading back to Dublin?? Nothing happening this morning... just the regular departures with a lot of planes taking advantage of using 17/35 runway.
