Europe Day marked in Carlow and Kilkenny

The Schuman Declaration was signed on this date in 1950


It’s Europe Day and events are taking place at key locations to mark the occasion.

The Schuman Declaration was signed on this day in 1950 to secure long-term peace in post-war Europe.

That signing is considered the beginning of what is now the European Union, which Ireland joined 50 years ago.

Highlighting the day, KCLR Live this morning broadcast from The Exchange in Carlow town:
