A Clare Government Senator has expressed concerns about the potential for Irish SME’s to access funding for manufacturing weapons.

An event entitled EU Funding for Irish Defence and Security, Enterprise and R&D – Maximising the Opportunities is to be hosted by the Department of Defence and the Defence Forces this weekend.

Minister Simon Coveney will be in attendance, with the event promising focus on ‘the new EU funding and technology supports for defence and security research, innovation, development’.


Inagh-based Green Senator Roisin Garvey says the event’s focus on defence is concerning.
