“A personal message from Liam Cosgrave” Vote Yes to the EEC – 1972 Referendum on Entry to the EEC November 7, 2010
From the 1972 Referendum on entry to the EEC an ad from Fine Gael urging a Yes vote.
Amongst the arguments used are that Britain will be entering and as they accounted for 65% of our exports that Ireland has to enter too.
We will be attractive for Foreign investment and the EEC will pay the farming subsidies that Taxpayers paid.
There was also the argument that if the North was in the EEC and we were not, then reunification of the island would be more difficult.
The Referendum was passed.
