EU Chief Barnier accepts McCallion’s invite to visit Derry

Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has welcomed news that the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, will visit Derry next week. 

The Foyle MP said:

“I welcome news that the European Union’s Chief Brexit Negotiator Michel Barnier will be visiting Derry as part of his visit to Ireland early next week.

“I had previously sent an invitation to Michel Barnier to visit the city and I am pleased he has now taken up on that offer and accepted my invitation.

“It is important that Michel Barnier sees at furst hand the impact that Brexit would have in cities like Derry, which is essentially a cross-border city, and other locations along the border.

“I look forward to Michel Barnier visiting the city.”
