.........A ceremony at the east Belfast airport is planned for 22 May, with the new signage being unveiled on what would have been his 60th birthday.
The decision to rename it George Best Airport followed meetings with his father, Dickie, and close relatives...........
I thought it was a nice tribute
just came across this - this has really annoyed me. I don't see why people would name an airport - or anything after a man who drank himself to death - he may have been a good footballer but seriously come on - did he ever do anything for northern ireland? did he help any community? put money into anything? all he is remembered for is drinking and being seen out and about with a lot of women. I just don't see how tht merits being honoured in this way! Surely there are other more worthy people who have done more for this country than George Best. I'm sorry if this is controversial but it really did annoy me when this was announced.
other airports that had been named after people .............. Heathrow .
