In a tweet by @Colm12Colm, the security guard is praised for his work at the airport: “There is a man working @DublinAirport security who is a showman. Cheerfully calls out hello to folks while running the crew. Refers to children as “Bambinos”. Asks about their colourful plastic bottles. Relentlessly peppy at 5am. Basks in the limelight. 10/10”.

Dublin Airport retweeted the post and named the security guard as “Dermot” adding that he “certainly does his best to put a smile on passengers’ faces at #DublinAirport every day” while sharing a film of Dermot at work, cheerfully guiding passengers and generally raising a smile.
