What was very pleasing this year was the fact that Ryanair had changed the location of the AGM from their new head office in swords to the radisson hotel at Dublin airport.
This change of location must have cost Ryanair a tidy sum which is great news.
In 2014 Ryanair left their old head office at Dublin airport for the new Ryanair head office in swords which was a great setting and saved Ryanair a tidy sum of money in 2014 but not in 2015 as Michael O'Leary thought.

2014 was a great year for Ryanairdontcare Campaign.It was the first time a peaceful protest was allowed to take place outside of Ryanair's head office as the AGM took place inside.Ryanair would always use the radisson hotel at Dublin airport and it benefited Ryanair because protests are not allowed in any part of the airport under a by-law.Soon as the airport police are called you have to leave or face arrest, which gives you not even enough time to get your banners out.See the 2010 Ryanair AGM protest at the radisson hotel main entrance below.
Ryanair called the Garda (Irish police) who told them to leave me alone and i could continue my peaceful protest.The BBC twitted our protest that day plus a camera man did a 30 minute interview outside.Ryanair's David Bonderman and Michael O'Leary were not very happy to see this protest being one of the best publicised in recent years.
In 2015 Ryanair decided to change the location of their AGM back to the radisson hotel because of the by-law stopping protests at the airport from taking place,which failed miserable yet again..As i arrived at the AGM around 8,30am on 24th September 2015 i was greeted by a Ryanair manager and Two Ryanair security guards, one of which assaulted me twice before, once being a serious assault which he was never charged with instead i was arrested by the Garda (Irish police) released with no charges two hours later.

Sorry for the bad language but this Ryanair security guard with his mate has assaulted me twice before at Ryanair AGM protests with one being a serious assault.
I was also approached by two Garda detectives (Irish police) and one airport police officer who talked to the Ryanair manager and his security guards and told me they had ask them to stay away from me and i was allowed to continue this peaceful protest outside the Ryanair AGM.It was a total shock that both sets of police agreed to let me continue this protest.You should have seen the face of the Ryanair manager and his security guards.(great sight)..The protest went on for 90 minutes and a share holder came outside to talk with me.He informed me that he had asked a question inside the AGM meeting, why was the very same protester for five years still protesting outside..BLOODY GREAT NEWS,after six years of campaigning in was talked about at the Ryanair AGM.

The last 12 months has been a great year for Ryanairdontcare Campaign's blog www.ryanairdontcarecrew.blogspot.com which has been viewed 1,3 million times
helping young people to see the exploitation involved at Ryanair in their cabin crew recruitment.Ryanair through their shell company Crewlink Ireland have stepped up recruitment days in Europe with 43 taking place in July 2015.I would hope these increased recruitment days are a way in showing cabin crew recruitment levels at Ryanair are down.Campaign and protests will continue Mr O'Leary ''doomed to fail''...
On 20th June 2015 the British Daily Mirror run a story which was a third of a page with the headline Ryanairunfair which was a reference to this blog Ryanairdontcare.
