This week C103FM spoke with British Ambassador Paul Johnston 


Did you know? 

The current theme of ‘Joining the Dots’, a British Embassy led programme that launched in Cork five years ago, centres around the retrofitting of houses and businesses.


‘Joining the Dots’ promotes economic links and opportunities between regions of the UK and Ireland bringing together the strands of the UK’s Levelling Up agenda and Ireland’s National Development Plan. 


The initial report was launched in Cork in 2018 and it identified untapped opportunities to connect business, researchers and academia to promote UK-Irish economic growth.


Since its launch, the programme has built cooperation between the regions by hosting a number of events.


This includes an event in Cork last month that focused on Building Retrofitting.
