9th May - Europe Day


Europe Day is the name of an annual observance by the European Union (EU), held on 9 May. It is also known as Schuman Day, in commemoration of the 1950 Schuman Declaration. It is the EU's "equivalent of a national day", and its observance is strongly associated with the display of the EU's equivalent of a national flag, the "European flag or emblem"




And for the first time ever, support for Ireland remaining in the EU is at over 90%
