Creagh’s Sam enjoys trip to EU Parliament
CREAGH COLLEGE Gorey Transition Year student Sam Walsh has just returned from an informative trip to the European Parliament in Brussels.
He wrote an essay last month titled ‘Why the EU is Important to Me’ and was chosen, along with nine other students from the south of the country, to visit the parliament in the Belgian capital.
The students got to meet Fine Gael MEPs Sean Kelly and Mairead McGuinness during the trip, which was hosted by the European People’s Party.
The students also met with EU Commissioner Phil Hogan just hours after he had concluded his latest round of Brexit negotiations.
Sam said his group got to visit the Parliament chamber as well as the European House of History museum.
The students also enjoyed tours of Bruges and Ghent.
