Saturday at the airport

Obviously I'm not surprised by all the reports that air travel is down, but still I was taken aback by how quiet Dublin Airport was this past Saturday. A year ago I'd have seen loads of men - mostly men - going to soccer games in England, and of course others going wherever. But on Saturday the airport was very quiet. I didn't see many people heading over to see the big clubs. Maybe it was the flight schedules and I missed them or maybe the games were not easy to get to or whatever, but the number of Manchester United, Liverpool & Chelsea fans I saw was way down on what I anticipated.
