Brexit poses a unique and unprecedented challenge for Ireland. Preparation is key; not only at Government level, but crucially, for businesses and citizens too. It is important that people have easy access to practical information and advice on a wide range of issues, and also on the many Government supports that are available to them.

The Tánaiste, Simon Coveney T.D. said: “While we still don’t know under what conditions the UK is leaving the European Union given the continued political uncertainty in London, we do know that Brexit will bring real changes for all of us. The Government has been working hard to ensure that Ireland is ready for these changes and we want to ensure that businesses and citizens have the necessary information to help them be as prepared as possible. Brexit is an unprecedented challenge that we’re all going to face and it’s going to have a significant impact on us here. We will feel it in our daily life, some businesses will need to adapt, and our economy will change.”
