The Committee on European Union Affairs plays a key role in informing debate on Ireland’s membership of the European Union.

The Committee fully considers important EU developments and initiatives affecting Ireland, ensures EU legislation and proposals are properly scrutinised and holds the Government to account in Ireland’s relations with Europe. The committee regularly engages with EU institutions to monitor and influence the political and strategic direction of the EU as a whole.
