Nessa Childers, Independent Dublin MEP recently hosted a delegation from Swords Senior Citizens to the European Parliament in Brussels, accompanied by local councillor, Paul Mulville.

“I was delighted to host the group from Swords Senior Citizens, along with local Cllr. Paul Mulville and Dublin trade union and political activist Paul Dillon. In particular, as we face into Brexit, I was very glad to discuss Brexit with the delegation, and to hear their views on how it will impact the island of Ireland and our country’s strong relationship with Britain, where many of our family and friends are living,” stated Childers.

“We really enjoyed the visit to the European Parliament and Brussels, and found it very informative” stated Eileen Power, Chairperson Swords Senior Citizens, “and in particular it was great to have the chance to learn at firsthand how the European Parliament works, to see the parliament chamber itself, and to discuss issues of concern directly with Nessa in the Parliament building.”
