EU policy could lead to conscription

Could Irish citizens be conscripted into an EU army?

THERE has been little media mention of Ireland’s involvement in the developing EU integrated defence policy. This will lead to an eventual EU army and I welcome the Republic’s participation – especially as SF support it. However, one word of caution. 

In the longer term the EU army could lead to conscription – it already exists in several EU nations such as Germany – and this would apply to all who have recently applied for Irish passports. 

This will not happen in the immediate future but it is a real possibility as the EU integrated defence policy develops.
