What is Ireland EU50?
Ireland EU50 is a programme of initiatives and events marking Ireland’s 50 years of EU membership since our decision to join the EEC in 1972. Ireland’s EU membership over the last 50 years has coincided with radical and transformative change across the social and economic landscape of Ireland. The EU has been a catalyst in the creation of the prosperous, peaceful and progressive Ireland we live in today and Ireland has too contributed to the development of today’s European Union.
