Ireland and Lisbon

The following statement is being released by Europe for Ireland:

Europe for Ireland welcomes the strong endorsement of the Lisbon Treaty by the Irish people. The big majority reflects the clear wish of the Irish people to continue to play an active role in the development of the European Union and to work together with our partners in Europe to master the challenges that face us all.

We respect our fellow citizens who voted No and we believe that the future will show that their worst fears about the Treaty will not be realised.

Ireland will remain the master of its own destiny in Europe.
