50 Years of Ireland in the EU

Over the course of 2022 and 2023 Ireland will mark the milestones that led us into the European Union with reflection, discussion and celebration.

It will be an occasion to consider the remarkable progress we, as a nation, have made and the progress we, as a Union, must make in order to make the next 50 years as successful as the last.
