FAI and Vi-Ability celebrate EU Day
As beneficiaries of the European Regional Development Fund via the Ireland Wales Cooperation programme 2014-2020, the FAI and Vi-Ability are celebrating Europe day by flying the Irish, Welsh and EU flags at FAI HQ in Dublin.
Europe Day is celebrated every year on 9 May. The date marks the anniversary of the historical 'Schuman declaration'. At a speech in Paris in 1950, Robert Schuman, the then French Foreign Minister, set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe's nations unthinkable.
Schuman's proposal is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union.
