Barnier who spoke from at European Movement Ireland’s European of the Year Award ceremony said Brexit did not bring the end of the European Union as people were predicting but rather it strengthened the unity within the union.

“Contrary to what many predicted at the time of the 2016 Brexit referendum, Brexit did not trigger the end of the European Union but the strengthening of its unity. Today Brexit has exposed the consequences of leaving the EU for all to see,” he said.

The European Movement Ireland handed Michel Barnier European of the Year Award. The historic award marked the first time the award is going to a non-Irish-citizen.

“A fantastic recipient who says he feels a ‘little bit Irish’. As a bonus, he is giving a master class in the art of negotiating – clear objectives, steady steps and leave emotions outside.”

A handle Leave EU tweeted, “The EU are determined to stop Britain enjoying the advantages of Brexit, they still can’t accept we’re now a free, sovereign nation!”

Meanwhile, Irish MEP Frances Fitzgerald wrote, “Congratulations to @MichelBarnier who has just been awarded the ‘European of the Year’ by @emireland.
