Queen’s University was delighted to host the first official visit by the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to Northern Ireland on Friday, 4 August 2017.

As part of the University’s Policy Engagement Public Lecture Series (Qpol), the Taoiseach delivered an address on “The Future of Relationships North and South”, which is available here. He also took part in a moderated session on the same topic.

Queen’s University has highlighted in its Brexit institutional paper the importance of prioritising continued strong relations between the North and South of Ireland.

Acting President and Vice-Chancellor of Queen’s University, Professor James McElnay commented: “We are delighted that the Taoiseach has chosen an address at Queen’s University as his first public engagement in Northern Ireland.

“Queen’s University has always enjoyed a strong relationship with the Irish Government, working closely with our colleagues in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.”

He added: “Brexit is one of the biggest issues currently facing many sectors and at Queen’s University we are no different – there are numerous challenges and perhaps some opportunities ahead.

“We look forward to discussing the key issues with the Taoiseach and continuing to build relationships.”
