Debating Brexit at NUI Galway

NUI Galway hosted, in association with the British Embassy in Ireland, a public event on Britain’s EU Referendum on Wednesday, 18th May, from 1.30pm - 4.15pm. The full event can be viewed below.

The UK is facing a momentous decision on June 23rd on whether to remain in or leave the EU.  Not surprisingly, the 'Brexit' debate is being followed with particular interest in Ireland – the only EU country with which the UK shares a land border.

This public event brought together a distinguished panel to debate the economic and political implications of Brexit on both the UK and Ireland.  The panelists include: Dan O’Brien (Institute of International and European Affairs), David Begg (TASC), Noelle O’Connell (European Movement Ireland), Mairéad McGuinness (MEP), John McHale (NUI Galway) and Conall MacCoille (Davy) and a senior UK government speaker.  MC for the event was TG4 news anchor Eimear Ni Chonaola.
