Taoiseach concerned about the impact of the Brexit turmoil on Ireland

Taoiseach Micheál Martin said he was concerned that the disruption caused by Brexit would have an impact on Ireland.

Speaking on the last day of his visit to New York for UN meetings, Mr Martin said he believed « the implications are yet to come in terms of Brexit ».

Britain has recently been hit by fuel shortages and supermarket shelves have been difficult to fill.

Taoiseach was asked if he was concerned about the possibility of spillovers in Ireland. Mr. Martin replied, « I do. »

He said: « I’ve been worried for a long time about Brexit.

I think Covid has hidden a lot of issues related to Brexit.

« We have now weathered some of the storm because of the preparations, we have prepared well, and also because we are opening up links with Europe. »
