SPOTM March 2017, Irish registered aircraft

We run two monthly photo competitions on Civilian Aviation, firstly the Photo Of The Month (POTM) competition for photos taken in the current month and secondly the Specialist Photo Of The Month (SPOTM) which had a different topic for the subject every month. There are normally NO prizes and it is just a bit of fun to enable members to compare their photos against others with the membership voting for the winners. Why not join in and enter and if you don't want to enter you can still pick your 3 favourites in our polls

When I started looking for entries I was surprise how many airlines operate Irish registered aircraft so lots of possibilities out there not to mention Irish registered biz and private aircraft. To start if off I'll go with this one, Meridiana B.737 EI-IGE at Bologna, Italy in May 2014.
