Bob Geldof has joined Irish4Europe’s #PhoneAFriend campaign.
Participating in a video in which people list their UK based Irish friends and family they are lobbying to register and vote remain in the forthcoming EU referendum, Geldof lists those he will be talking to.
Irish4Europe is a non-party political campaign run by Irish people in Britain campaigning to keep the UK in the European Union.
David D’Arcy of Irish4Europe said: “Our campaign asking Irish people in the UK to consider the barriers a Brexit would bring between Britain, Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Our nations have worked hard through painful decades to reach an all-time high in our relations. Now is not the time for barriers.”
Irish4Europe is asking everybody in Ireland to touch base with their compatriots in the UK and ask them to register to vote at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote before June 7.
