Seán Kelly MEP welcomed a Visitor’s Group to the European Parliament (EP) in Brussels last week. The 50-strong group was made up of individuals, a women’s network and a students’ group, representing the counties of Limerick, Tipperary, Cork, Kerry, Wexford and Clare.
MEP Kelly was very pleased to invite his constituents into the EP, and for the opportunity to give an insight into the role of the representatives. “It’s great to see people so interested in the workings of the Parliament. There are 500 million Europeans represented here, and it’s a wonderful opportunity for Irish people to spend time where voices of all Europeans can be heard, and where their common laws take shape.”
The group spent three days in Belgium, taking in the sights in Brussels before visiting the Museums and battlefields of Ypres, and the Island of Ireland Peace Park. They rounded off the trip with a day trip to the nearby cities of Bruges and Ghent.
