According to The Irish Times (22nd Dec), EI has been given permission to re-join OneWorld.

That's not what the article says. The transatlantic joint venture is not the same as OneWorld.

I read the article and have the same impression as the OP, they're part of Oneworld.

Noxegon is correct. It’s the Atlantic Joint Business arrangement they’re joining. Not OneWorld.

Typical non-aviation journo conflating the two.

Aer Lingus set to close Shannon Airport base

Does this mean that Aer Lingus are pulling Shannon ops completely or are we expecting LHR-SNN to be a non based aircraft with Dublin based crews? Are the BOS/JFK routes gone for good or simply a third party handling agent replacing in house staff?

Sounds like they will just switch to Dublin and align with what pilots do.

Unfortunately, it looks like the cuts at Shannon are only the start of a new phase of head count reductions.

From The Irish Times, 21 May 2021

Brian Bowden, Aer Lingus chief people officer, repeated to staff on Friday that the carrier would emerge smaller from the pandemic, which meant further redundancies.

“We have now commenced discussion with unions representing employees regarding both immediate and structural changes,” he said.

It would appear that the remaining options for A350's have been dropped.
