The Taoiseach will outline his view on the future of Europe this morning. Leo Varadkar is in Strasbourg to address the European Parliament.

He will address members of the European Parliament and talk about Ireland being a leader in shaping Europe. Leo has said that Ireland has ‘gained a huge amount’ from the European Union and that now the country has a responsibility to help lead it forward.

Leo Varadkar will thank other EU nations for their support so far in the Brexit negotiations, but also express the importance of turning the agreements so far into legally binding deals.


The Taoiseach will outline Ireland’s views on the negotiations and building a strong relationship with the UK.

Varadkar will also speak with the President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, and with the European Parliament’s Chief Brexit Coordinator, Guy Verhofstadt, in bilateral meetings.

The Taoiseach is expected to stress the importance of a united Europe heading into the challenges of the 21st century.
