Is there not an alternate holding at DAYNE when the MCT VOR/DME is u/s? It has 3.1nm legs. Maybe the FMC uses this as the default for some reason?

NOTAM says it's off the air until the 3rd of September. Must be routine maintenance. In fairness it's never a good time to have the CAT II gone in Cork because the fog is never far away:ok:
