Separately, I am supporting fundraising efforts to help an Afghan family escape a life of fear under the oppressive Taliban.
Any assistance you could give, no matter the amount, to our fundraising campaign would be extremely appreciated.

RT @EirGrid: We are honoured to have been awarded the RGI Good Practice of the Year Award 2022 in the category Communication & Engagement for ‘Shaping our Electricity Future’, a comprehensive public consultation on how to best achieve 🇮🇪’s renewable ambitions. #PCIdaysEU #CEFEnergy #PCIList
Huge ambition in NZ to expand food & fibre exports by $44bn. over next decade. In Ir. we hear more about reduction !! I made some pertinent points on this with NZ Ministers & Officials this morning as part of @EP_Trade mission.
A v important point made by Phelim O Neill @farmersjournal - the UK Trade Deal with NZ & Australia will pose a huge challenge to Irish meat exports - maybe, much bigger negative impact on #agrifood exports than any #FTA that @union_european will do with Third Countries.
It’s beyond time that the other EU Prime Ministers told selfish, egotistical Orban, where to get off - & quick ! If Russia invaded Hungary what would he say ?
RT @bpolitics: Hungarian PM Viktor Orban calls on the EU to scrap its sanctions against Russia by the end of this year, Magyar Nemzet newspaper reports https://www.bloomberg.com/tosv2.html?vid=&uuid=d7b13b8d-3aba-11ed-81b4-4a6541717947&url=L25ld3MvYXJ0aWNsZXMvMjAyMi0wOS0yMi9…
Enjoyed visiting the Wellington Parliament with my @EP_Trade colleagues, productive meetings with with members of @govtnz , @NZParliament, businesses & civil society.
Very informative ahead of the next round of discussions on the #EUNZFTA 🇳🇿🇪🇺
& some saying we’re fine in Ir.!We’re in for a rude awakening & no one will have pity on us as we have opportunity to build an #LNG terminal & have loads of gas off our shores! Madness prevails!
RT @NewStatesman: A lack of gas storage capacity and the refusal by the government to limit demand increases the risk of blackouts this winter. https://www.newstatesman.com/chart-of-the-day/2022/09/uk-gas-reserves-storage-europe-germany?ut…
RT @tukakimatt: Bigs up to hui with @SeanKellyMEP and the rest of the EU delegation on building stronger ties. I'm a strong supporter of ensuring we build lasting connections! #opportunity #family #future

Thank God, I’m in Australia. Pity, I wasn’t here on this day in 1982, instead of being in the dugout @CrokePark ! Ah, no, it was a great goal - nudge, nudge - by Seamus Darby & @Offaly_GAA deserved their victory, under brilliant manager, the late, Eugene McGee. @OfficialLDGAA

Had v informative discussion on #Foreign policy with @LowyInstitute esp. in relation to #China & it’s attitude to #Taiwan as part of @EP_Trade mission to #Australia .Imperative that #EU develops closer economic & political ties with Australia & New Zealand. @EPPGroup @FineGael
A real privelege to be briefed on #solarenergy @UNSW by world renowned researcher, Martin Green- a genius & real nice man & v clear communicator. Cost & effectiveness & #carbonfootprint of #SOLAR has come down dramatically as a result of #researchers here.
Whatever people might say or think about #Royals , I was v honoured to sign Book of Condolence for #QueenElizabeth at Australian Parliament in #Canberra today. Her humanity & decency always shone out. Ní bheidh a leithéid mar bhanríon arís! RIP.
& then we meet Trade Minister @DonFarrell & he starts by telling MEP’s how proud he is of his Irish heritage & his great, grandparents emigrated from Kilfeacle in #Tipperary 1862. He is coming to Ir. Dec. @LeoVaradkar give him Céad Míle Fáilte !
Great to be @ParliamentAustralia #Canberra & meet the great Senator @Deborah_ONeill who proudly told me of her #Kilkenny & Castlemartyr, #Cork family. People like Deboragh, so proud & supportive of Ireland,play a huge role in enhancing Ir’s inerests overseas. @EP_Trade
