Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD (Fine Gael) has congratulated Cork North Central TD Dara Murphy (Fine Gael) on his appointment as Campaign Director for the European People’s Party (EPP), across the European Union, for the 2019 European Elections.
The EPP is the largest party in the European Parliament. Fine Gael was a founder member of the EPP and has always played a strong role in the Party.
The Taoiseach said, “At this crucial time with Brexit negotiations underway and discussions also taking place about the future direction and shape of the European Union, Deputy Dara Murphy’s appointment is further evidence of the important role that Fine Gael plays within the EPP, Europe’s largest political party.”
