Kilkenny’s Phil Hogan is new EU Trade Commissioner

Kilkenny’s Phil Hogan has been named as the new EU Commissioner for Trade.

His nomination comes at a crucial time for both the EU and Ireland, with his tenure coinciding with the UK’s exit from the EU.

In a statement, Commissioner Hogan says he will support the pursuit of a “strong, open and fair trade agenda.”

The President- elect of the European Commission announced the position along with other roles in the College of Commissioners.
