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 Martin O’Donoghue. Martin is a Historian and Author based in the University of Sheffield’s Department of History since 2020. A Recipient of the National Library of Ireland Research Studentship, Martin holds a PhD in 2017 from the National University of Ireland, Galway where his research was funded by the Irish Research Council.
Martin’s research examines the dynamics of political thought and debate in modern Ireland and in his article for The European Network, Martin looks beyond the longer story of the Irish state and Europe, considering Irish links to the continent in a broad sense as well as development in the state’s political, social and economic imperatives.
You can access the article here. Martin is chatting with The European Network’s Ken Sweeney.
This series is presented in cooperation with the Irish Foreign Ministry as part of the Communicating Europe Initiative.
