“Since being appointed Chief Executive, Scollan has made an enormous contribution to Western Development, bringing it to the very forefront of the political agenda”
“I wish to record my appreciation for the work you have done and the leadership and inspiration given to many of us in regard to developing the West”
Liam, you have done Trojan work for the airport and the region over the years and I hope you are rightly proud of your achievements.
I can honestly say that Knock has grown significantly during your time in office…. when many other regional airport have closed, it is good to see Knock going from strength to strength
“The results achieved by the airport in terms of passenger numbers and connections to the West have been phenomenal. You can be proud of all that you have achieved”
Knock Airport grew rapidly in the years after Liam Scollan’s appointment and the entire facility was utterly transformed. At times the pace of change seemed mesmerising and there seemed to be barely a week when the airport was not making some positive announcement.
“You can look back on the last ten years with considerable pride in a remarkable achievement of overcoming all the odds in maintaining the viability of a provincial airport in rural Ireland.”
“I must thank you for your contribution towards bringing the organic sector to a larger audience. The Commission must indeed be congratulated on having the vision to allow a Blueprint document on the organic sector to be written. Your commitment to the organic sector no doubt contributed.”
“Scollan in re-energised in his commitment to the West.” Read “Digging furrows for future” The Mayo News
Liam provided strategic guidance and management advice to Western Forestry Co-op. His professional integrity and diligent work ethic were to be admired. In particular I admire his dedication to sustainable development and rural issues, working with a co-operative organisation was second nature to him. He is an asset to any organisation and I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work with him.”
I hired Liam Scollan to plan the development of a World Centre for Yeats in in 2014/15. His vision for this major arts and tourism project was outstanding. He was excellent in enabling many different interests from business to arts and public sector to work together. I found him easy to work with and recommend him highly to any group who have ambition to get a major project off the ground.
Liam Scollan has served on the Board of the Mayo Rape Crisis Centre since 2014 in a voluntary capacity.
In that time Liam’s integrity and presence to the organisation has been exceptional. His sensitivity, support and commitment to the very difficult work of the organisation has made him invaluable as a board member. His willingness to be educated about the issues which a Rape Crisis Centre deals with on a daily basis is to be commended. Liam brought a wealth of experience and insight from other roles he has had in community which has been very beneficial for our organisation.
Having Liam as a Board member has strengthened the voice and credibility of Mayo Rape Crisis Centre. On a very personal level, Liam has also been a fantastic support and resource for me in my role as Director of Services.
