Me, You and the EU - The Story of Ireland and the European Union

‘Me, You & the EU’ is a short, fast-paced educational film about Ireland and the European Union.

Over the course of five chapters, Irish teenagers from across the country ask key questions about the EU. We follow them on their journey to discover more about the history of the EU and how Ireland’s EU membership impacts their daily lives.

We find out about key EU policies, how the different institutions work, and how the EU is responding to current challenges. We hear from Ireland’s EU Commissioner, Mairead McGuinness, and Irish MEPs, and we learn about traineeships and career opportunities for young people in the EU institutions.
