(Newser) – Yet another massive cloud of ash from Iceland is ruining Irish travel plans for the second time in 5 days. Six airports in the west of the country will be closed today because of a massive cloud of ash, the BBC reports. Cancellations caused by volcanic ash are likely to continue off and on for as long as Eyjafjallokull keeps erupting. Its last period of activity lasted 2 years, from 1821 to 1823.
