Ireland at the European Union
Permanent Mission of Ireland to the European Union, Brussels
Based in Brussels, the Permanent Representation of Ireland to the European Union brings together civil servants from nearly every Irish Government department, making it the State’s largest diplomatic mission abroad.
50 years of Ireland in the EU
Ireland’s 50 years of EU membership has coincided with a radical economic and social transformation of our country.
The Government’s EU50 programme is marking Ireland’s 50 years of EU membership since our decision to join the EEC in 1972. Government Departments, State Agencies, second and third level institutions, civil society groups, industry, cultural institutions and our Mission network have all been encouraged to get involved.
