League Stance on British Irish Council Re-emphasised


The British-Irish Council came under scrutiny at the AGM of the Celtic League held in Dublin at the weekend (10-12th April 2015).

The structure of the BI Council which includes England and the Channel Isles (and excludes Brittany ) is fundamentally at odds with the type of co-operative grouping of Celtic States which the League espouses.

After some discussion the following resolution which restates our earlier position was adopted:

“This AGM of the Celtic League reiterates our opposition to the British and Irish Council, which is diametrically opposed to the long term aim of the Celtic League, an association of free Celtic Nations without links to erstwhile imperial powers, and including of course a reunified Ireland and Brittany .”

The resolution was moved by the Irish branch and received unanimous endorsement.

(Note: Branches or Officers that propose resolutions subsequently adopted are responsible for there implementation. Other branches can support and endorse the mover of the resolution subject to liaison with them).
