Europe Day

9 May 2022, 08.00


Europe Day takes place every year on 9 May. It celebrates peace and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historic 'Schuman declaration' when French politician Robert Schuman set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe.

This year Ireland is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the referendum that endorsed our entry into the EEC (10 May 1972). This year also sees the conclusion of the Conference on the Future of Europe after 12 months of debate. Today the Conference hands over its report with recommendations from EU citizens on the challenges and priorities ahead.
