British EU exit would have ‘huge implications’ for Island of Ireland – Carthy

A British exit from the EU would be a
negative step that would have huge implications for the whole of the Island of
Ireland. That’s the view of the Sinn Fein MEP Matt Carthy who was speaking from
the European Parliament in Strasbourg. Mr Carthy says the Republic of Ireland needs
to engage with Northern Ireland on the debate surrounding the promised British
referendum on EU membership.

Age and experience no guarantee of presidential competence – Childers

Age and experience won’t necessarily
guarantee presidential success in office. So says the Dublin MEP Nessa Childers
whose father Erskine Childers was a former president of Ireland. Ms Childers
says she’s in favour of reducing the age of a presidential candidate from
thirty five [35] to twenty one [21].
