Welcome to The European Network’s Ireland EU50 podcast.
In this series we will be complimenting 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 journalist Valerie Cox. Valerie has worked with all the national newspapers & spent 24 years working with RTÉ on Morning Ireland, Drivetime and on the Today Show with Pat Kenny and Sean O’Rourke covering everything from current affairs to the District court. Valerie has also worked abroad in Sri Lanka and in Vietnam.
In her article for the EU50 series, Valerie discusses just how far Ireland has gone over the last 50 years of membership and examines the realisation that we are all one, that we can work together to create not only a better Europe, as in the original EEC, but a better world for everyone. Valerie is chatting with The European Network’s Lennard Van Otterloo.
This series is presented in cooperation with the Irish Foreign Ministry as part of the Communicating Europe Initiative.
