Over the weekend, Irish Twitter was abuzz with memes, hot takes and videos of never-ending queues, as for the second time this year, delays at Dublin Airport made headlines.

More than a thousand people are said to have missed their flights, and Minister of State for International Transport Hildegarde Naughton will meet with the DAA today to discuss the situation – you can read more about the severity of the situation HERE.

Meanwhile, live footage from Dublin Airport HQ was leaked:
