Ireland's 'hard working' presidency comes to an end

After a six-month stint in charge that ended in particular with an agreement on the long-term EU budget, the Irish Presidency of the EU came to an end with a debate in the European Parliament on July 2. 

Speaking to MEPs and the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič thanked the Irish for their "hard work and good humour" that helped them to achieve so much, in particular the deal on the next multi-annual financial framework (MFF), the EU budget for 2014-2020.
