The All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Irish in Britain met the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charlie Flanagan TD, this week.
At the meeting the cross-party group of MPs discussed the APPG and the Irish government’s role in supporting the Irish community in Britain, British-Irish relations with the EU, and the current political situation in Northern Ireland.
The meeting came after Conor McGinn MP, Chair of the APPG, attended the first Global Irish Parliamentarians’ Forum in Dublin last week.
The forum brought together Irish-connected political representatives who serve in national parliaments and state assemblies in Australia, Canada, France, the U.K. and the U.S.A.
Commenting Mr McGinn said:
“It was a great pleasure and honour to welcome the Minister for Foreign Affairs to the Westminster and I look forward to productive working relationship between Irish Government and the APPG.
“The first Global Irish Parliamentarians’ Forum was a great opportunity to meet, connect and form working relationships with Irish parliamentarians across the world. I and my colleagues from the APPG, look forward to developing these in future.”
