I first remember being at St Angelo airfield in the early 1980's and there was a lot to see but unfortunately at that time I did not have the foresight to realise that the landowner would decide to rip out virtually all of the remaining Second World War buildings - Shame on me.

Please take the time to read http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/3580505.stm

Has anyone information about the old St Angelo airfield?

Yes, it was invariably wet!:-D In my previous employment many nights were spent in Portakabins on the east side of the road, behind the corrugated iron walls. It always struck me as an incredibly constricted site, even for helicopter ops. Your linked article makes sad reading - the hillside opposite the timberyard was covered in trenches, ISTR.

Looking at the layout it always looked as though it was another three runway airfield that missed out of the final runway. Was this the case or, given it's genesis, merely an enhanced SLG given an extra runway? With Mullaghamore, despite a similar layout, you can see the third runway partially completed
