Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

I welcomed Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis to Dublin on 4 March. I joined him in a visit to Hartstown Community School, which I understand has the largest percentage of students from Lithuania in the country.

We then had a bilateral meeting over lunch at which we discussed the excellent bilateral relations between Ireland and Lithuania; areas for further cooperation between us; and a range of other issues on the EU agenda.

I thanked the Prime Minister for Lithuania’s steadfast support for Ireland in the Brexit negotiations.
