Hello and welcome to The European Network’s Ireland EU50 podcast.
In this series we will be complementing our collection of articles that have been published over the last 18 months on The European Network website that celebrate 50 years of Ireland in the European Union.
Today our guest is writer and political commentator James Candon. A self-confessed Europhile, James believes in bringing people together to build a competitive diverse Europe and in his article for The European Network, James wrote that Ireland in the EU has provided freedom and privilege to have one or more identities and to have strong and free debate on all political matters that impact our daily lives.
James is talking with The European Network’s Brian Milne.
This series is presented in cooperation with the Irish Foreign Ministry as part of the Communicating Europe Initiative.
