Just a quick update. I have a meeting later today with the European Movement Ireland about an event in Cork for Europe Day. It will be held on Friday May 7th. There will be other events in other cities across the country.

To give you an idea what is planned this is what the European Movement have on their website:

As part of our Europe Day celebrations this year, EM Ireland staff and members will be canvassing in hubs around the country handing out lollipops, pens and balloons. We will also be distributing Citizens’ Initiative postcards, answering people’s questions, and generally having a chat about Europe. This will take place on Friday 7 May.

On Sunday 9 May, there will be a special screening of the My Vision for Europe videos in Meeting House Square in Temple Bar. The programme was coordinated in conjunction with the European Parliament in Dublin and the Temple Bar Cultural Trust. The standard of submissions was extremely high and we are delighted that the finalists’ videos from the schools project will be publicly broadcast on Europe Day itself.

If anyone would like to join in on the canvassing or come along to see the open air broadcast, we would love to see you there. Drop us a line on 01 662 5815 or send Billie an email at billie(at)europeanmovement.ie for more details.

More details later!

Dont forget about My Europe Week which will be celebrating Europe Day online!
