"Éire agus an tAontas Eorpach."

Translation:Ireland and the European Union.

September 4, 2014



Is the European Community different from the European Union? From my part of North America, they both look the same.


The European Economic Community became the European Community in 1993 with the adoption of the Masstricht Treaty, which also created the European Union, of which the EC was one of the pillars. The European Community was phased out as a separate entity by the Treaty of Lisbon in 2009, which fully incorporated all of the functions of the European Community in to the European Union.

In short, what was the EC is now the EU.


What would be the equivalent of the abbreviation EU in Irish ? Would it be AE, tAE or AtAE ?
