Department of An Taoiseach
Discussions with European Leaders
I spoke with Ursula von der Leyen on 12 July to congratulate her on her nomination by the European Council for President of the European Commission.
I also wrote to her on 31 July nominating Phil Hogan for a second term as Ireland's member of the European Commission
I look forward to working with her during her term in office to advance the Strategic Agenda adopted by the European Council in June to guide the work of the Institutions over the next five years.
