Ryanair has announced the appointment of Róisín Brennan as non-executive director.

Brennan is currently a non-executive director of Coillte, Musgrave Group and Dell Bank International. She was a former Chief Executive of IBI Corporate and non-executive director of DCC.

We are pleased to welcome Róisín Brennan to the Board of Ryanair Holdings. Given Róisín’s considerable experience and skills in the field of finance and as a non-executive Director, she will, I believe, be a significant and valuable addition to both our Board and Audit Committee. Róisín will go forward for shareholder approval at our September 2018 AGM. In the meantime, we all look forward to working closely with Róisín to grow Ryanair safely and profitably in the best interests of our customers, our people, and our shareholders.

―David Bonderman, Chairman, Ryanair

As a chartered accountant, Brennan will join Ryanair’s Audit Committee.
