This chapter examines how the Irish media shapes attitudes and understanding about the EU. This starts with an examination of whether the media could or should have a role in creating a European public sphere. The chapter then analyses how the media in the Republic of Ireland reported the Brexit referendum. It argues that their reporting was marked by a strongly Irish-focused perspective and that a wider sense of Europe and Europeanness did not emerge.
