European moves towards a common defence policy have been criticised by Sinn Fein MEPs who say it will compromise Irish neutrality. During the week the EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called for the setting up of a single and permanent EU military headquarters.

However, the Sinn Fein MEP Liadh Ni Riada says greater military integration is the wrong move for the EU.
