Ireland has won a seat on the UN security council last week, both Ireland and Norway will take seats on the security council while Canada missing out. A total of 191 counties voted, Ireland needed a two-thirds majority. Ireland has proud history when to comes to service to the wider UN community. Since the foundation of the United Nations Ireland has played an active and leading role, with individuals such as Sean McBride, Mary McAleese, Bono, Bob Geldof and countless numbers of peacekeeping efforts from the Defense force, with deployments from the Congo and the Mediterranean, to Lebanon as well, all severing Ireland with distinction and pride, with the ambition to improve human life. Ireland has played leading role when it comes to our role within the wider United Nations community. As a nation that Ireland has fought its way up the ladder within the wider international community, such as when Irish delegates attend the negations at the treaty of Versailles to lobby for the a new Irish state, and hosting a Eucharistic Congress in 1932, right up to now with Ireland beating Canada to take a seat on the UN Security Council.
