Scottish-Irish relations to enter 'new chapter'

FOREIGN Affairs Minister Charlie Flanagan will talk of a “new chapter” in Scottish-Irish relations while making a special visit to Edinburgh this week.

The Minister will take questions after speaking about “the relationship between Ireland and Scotland” at a public event due to be held at the European Centre for Carbon Innovation on Thursday, February 5.

His address will also cover the “evolving nature of wider British-Irish relations and the relations between these islands and the European Union” a spokesperson for the Irish Consulate in Scotland told The Irish Post this week.

Mr Flanagan’s speech will be set against the backdrop of his recent publication of Ireland’s Foreign Policy Review – The Global Island.

The event, which has been jointly organised by the Consulate, the Europa Institute and the University of Edinburgh, will also include a networking session.
