Europa United is delighted to present the first in a series of podcasts and we decided to kick off in Brussels where we were guests of European Parliament in Ireland.

Our first guest was Kate Hickey from Irish Central, an leading Irish digital media company in North America, providing political, current affairs, entertainment, and historical commentary to the Irish throughout the world. Kate chats with us about American European relations, the mood on Brexit in the US and the atmosphere of US elections.
While we were were there, we spoke with Vice President of the European Parliament, Mairead McGuinness who gave us the latest update in the Brexit discussions.
Conservative MEP Charles Tannock also gave us a frank assessment of the current situation with Brexit as well as giving us his predictions on how the next few months turn out.
We end the podcast with a lively debate with Fine Gael MEP’s Brian Hayes, Deirdre Clune and Seán Kelly on subjects such as the importance of European elections compared to local elections, Scottish Independence and the suspension of Fidesz by the European Peoples Party.
Our Podcasts are presented in cooperation with the The Communicating Europe Initiative (CEI). The CEI was established in 1995 to raise awareness about the European Union and to improve the quality and accessibility of public information on European issues. The programme is administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. This year, €100,000 has been provided for Communicating Europe Initiative funded projects.
