Irish Minister for European Affairs, Dara Murphy, said he was confident that Spain and Ireland will continue to increase “the excellent trade and economic relations” they maintain during the reception hosted by Ambassador David Cooney (pictured above with Murphy and their respective wives) to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

 

The top Irish official briefly alluded to Brexit to emphasize that, like Spain, his country is a strong supporter of the European Union and will remain in it, as it “has brought peace and prosperity to Ireland and Europe.”

 

Dara Murphy, who traveled to Madrid accompanied by representatives of several Irish companies, stressed that it was a great pleasure for him to attend the reception “on the day we celebrate our identity, our tradition and our culture.”

 

The reception was attended by numerous ambassadors including those of United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Portugal, Switzerland, Andorra, Malta, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Greece, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Austria, Serbia, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Oman, Colombia, Ghana, South Africa, Indonesia and Thailand. Also present were the Chargé d’Affairs of the United States Embassy and the Minister-Counselors of Poland and Russia.
