European Movement Ireland was delighted to host an evening with European Movement Ireland Honorary President, An Taoiseach Micheál Martin TD, in the Shelbourne Hotel on Tuesday, 3 May 2022, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Ireland’s referendum to join the EEC in 1972.
The evening’s discussion with An Taoiseach was recorded live and is the first episode in a new podcast series EM Ireland launched in May 2022 to celebrate 50 years of Ireland’s membership of the EU. This special series will look to the past to help us understand how EU membership has left a defining mark on the Ireland of today. Podcast listeners have a unique opportunity to hear the Taoiseach’s reflections on Ireland’s membership of the EU.
