History

UEN was formed on 20 July 1999,[4] supplanting the earlier Union for Europe. Its member parties Fianna Fáil and National Alliance were considered the driving forces behind the group despite their being alone in their support for the proposed European Constitution. The Treaty was negotiated by FF leader Bertie Ahern (in his capacity as President of the European Council in 2004) and by AN leader Gianfranco Fini (in his capacity as member of the Convention presided by Valéry Giscard d'Estaing).

UEN was a heterogeneous group: broadly National Conservative, but some of its members were either uncomfortable with this characterization or eventually evolved into something different. After the 2009 Euroelections it officially had 35 members but this figure included parties such as Fianna Fáil, which had already[19] committed to leave.

UEN member parties migrated to other groups after the elections in June 2009 and before the 2009-2014 term (the Seventh European Parliament) started on 14 July 2009. Fianna Fáil had already left for ALDE, TB/LNNK and Law and Justice MEPs went to the European Conservatives and Reformists, and Dansk Folkeparti, Lega Nord and Order and Justice MEPs went to Europe of Freedom and Democracy. The group collapsed.
