Join a European Defence Force
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar suggested it would be possible to win a vote here to join a European Defence Force. Is he right?
An opposition TD says he would welcome a referendum on Ireland joining a European defence force.
Paul Murphy was speaking after Tánaiste Leo Varadkar suggested it would be possible to win a vote here to join such an organisation.
But Mr Varadkar said there is no political support for Ireland to join NATO.
Deputy Murphy told Pat Kenny he would be happy to get clarity from the people.
“I would welcome a referendum on this, because I think what’s been happening is we’ve been joining this process of European militarisation by the back door.
