EU hope

• Michael Brennan reported on the beginning of the Irish EU Presidency ('Enda Kenny promises 2013 will be a year of new hope', January 1).

This year marks the 40th anniversary of our entry into the EU. The presidency reminds us that our prosperity depends on international co-operation and global stability. For this reason, we must take the opportunity of the presidency to champion progress toward a fairer, more stable international community.

Our presidency coincides with the European Year of the Citizen, a year to celebrate the role of 'people power' in shaping a fairer Ireland, Europe and global community.
