To celebrate Europe Day 2022 and the Fiftieth anniversary of Ireland joining the European Union, Minister Charlie McConalogue hosted His Excellency Mr Ildefonso Castro, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Spain for a day-long visit to Inishowen.
He added: “We then went to St Patrick's Boys' National School in Carndonagh, where we met with students who are participating in European cultural projects.
“It is wonderful to be with the Ambassador in the Greencastle Maritime Museum, as part of a programme which is going on across the country today to mark 50 years of Ireland's accession into the European Union, our friendship and how it has benefited countries right across Europe.
“One of our best friends always has been Spain, so it has been a pleasure to have the Ambassador here in Donegal today as part of that,” said Minister McConalogue.
