EPLO Ireland Podcast: In Conversation with Frances Fitzgerald

To mark International Women’s Day 2024, the European Parliament Liaison Office is publishing an interview recorded live with Frances Fitzgerald MEP on the Directive on Combatting Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence, for which she is rapporteur, and on her career in EU and Irish politics.

As she stands down as an MEP, Frances Fitzgerald joins Irish Independent columnist Sarah Carey in an intimate conversation looking back on her start in politics, recruited by Garret FitzGerald to lead the liberal constitutional crusade that took her to the highs of Minister for Justice and Tánaiste, the lows of being forced to resign and her achievements in the European Parliament. In this interview in front of a live audience, at times emotional, at times hilarious, she offers a frank, raw and philosophical view of her life in politics, the shift to the right in European politics and offers wisdom and insight to women considering a political career.

Sarah asks her is she’s running for President. Is Frances walking away from politics? We don’t think so!

Tune in for this enjoyable and entertaining interview with one of the great women of Irish politics.
