European Movement Ireland are delighted to invite you to a series of ‘Meet Your MEP Candidates’ Public Meetings in each of the constituencies around Ireland where you will have a chance to meet MEP Candidates from across the political spectrum. At the meetings, each candidate will speak about their own campaign and values, and a Q&A session will follow where you will have the chance to discuss the issues of importance to you with the candidates ahead of the European Parliament Elections in Ireland on 24 May 2019.
The European Parliament elections will take place across the EU between 23-26 May 2019. In Ireland, we will vote on Friday, 24 May 2019.
The European Parliament is the only directly elected EU Institution, and what is decided in the Parliament over the next five years will have a direct impact on our lives.
In May 2019, EU citizens will elect 705 members (MEPs) in total to represent them at the European Parliament until 2024, with 13 MEPs coming from Ireland.
Voting in the European Parliament elections gives you a say over the future direction of the EU, and a chance to shape the kind of Europe we live in.
The European Parliament elections will take place across the EU between 23-26 May 2019. In Ireland, we will vote on Friday, 24 May 2019.
