Ireland for Europe blog

For an outside observer like me it would be an anomaly if pro-European Ireland ended up with a complete opt-out from the Lisbon Treaty and mentally even farther away from the European Union than Britain.

Given the less than brilliant performance of the pro-Lisbon political class ahead of the first referendum, active citizens have seen the need to argue the case for Ireland’s future in Europe.

One such group is ‘Ireland for Europe’, a new independent and non-party campaign strongly committed to promoting a ‘Yes’ vote in the referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.

The blog is updated daily with facts and views to support active Irish engagement in Europe and to dispel distorted anti-European claims.
