Age and Opportunity Group from Co. Clare visit EP offices in Dublin
Members from an Age & Opportunity group from Co. Clare visited the EP office in Dublin today. The Group, who travelled from Ennis, Kilkee and Kilrush, were briefed by the Head of Office on the general history of the EU and its institutions, relations between Ireland and the EU, the specific role and activities of the European Parliament and the work of the Irish MEPs, etc. A number of issues such as the implications of EU water policy were subsequently raised. The visit forms part of the Office's actions to mark the Year of Active Ageing.
