Just The Chats

We are delighted to have launched our new EM Ireland podcast series ‘Just The Chats’! As part of this new series, we will be chatting to a range of people across Ireland and throughout the continent to hear about their experiences of Europe. Since 1954, European Movement Ireland has been working to strengthen the connection between all sectors of Irish society and Europe. We believe that communication between the EU Institutions and people in Ireland must be a two-way dialogue and not simply top-down information provision. We want to provide factual information about Europe in language that is clear and understandable, ensuring a robust, fair and factual public discourse on European issues. So have a listen, get involved, and let us know what you think!
