Keelin was joined by the German Ambassador to Ireland, Dr Eckhard Lubkemeier. Dr Lubkemeier arrived to take up his position just months after Ireland entered the EU/IMF bailout programme in 2010 – and after a turbulent enough period for Irish/German relations his tenure here is about to an end So he came into us take a look back over the last few years.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0730/633969-today-with-sean-o-rourke-wednesday-30-july-2014/?clipid=1640655
There may be a disconnect between most people and the institutions of Europe, but one cohort of society that has always tuned into the latest from Brussels is the farming community. Darragh McCullough, Deputy Farming Editor with The Irish Independent joins me now to look at what Europe has done for – and what it has taken from – Irish farmers since 1973.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0506/615465-today-with-sean-o-rourke-tuesday-6-may-2014/?clipid=1569735
On May 23rd, voters will elect 11 parliamentarians to represent Ireland in Europe, a select group who will spend half their working week on the continent. Decisions taken at a European level have a major impact on our several aspects of our lives. Despite this, a disconnect persists between the institutions in Brussels and the citizens they serve. Sean was joined in studio by Deputy Lucinda Creighton, former Minister for European Affairs and Dr John O'Brennan, Director of European Studies at NUI Maynooth. Also involved in the discussion was Stephen Booth of the London-based think tank, Open Europe.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0424/610700-today-with-sean-o-rourke-thursday-24-april-2014/?clipid=1540832

Military intervention in the Ukraine crisis has thus far been ruled out by both the United States and the European Union, leaving the superpowers with only one card to play in the form of economic sanctions. But with Europe hugely dependent on Russia for its gas and oil supply, is talk of economic warfare nothing more than lip service, and does Vladimir Putin have any reason at all to fear an economic slap on the wrist from the EU? Keelin was joined by David Horgan, Managing Director of Petrel Resources and by Con Coughlin of the Daily Telegraph.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0319/603192-today-with-sean-o-rourke-wednesday-19-march-2014/?clipid=1513026
The European Union and the United represent 60% of global GDP, 33% of world trade in goods and 42% of world trade in services.
