The Government is clear about Ireland’s Brexit priorities:
Minimising the impact on trade and the economy
Protecting the Northern Ireland Peace Process
Maintaining the Common Travel Area
Influencing the future of the European Union.
More detail on these can be seen in 'Brexit – Ireland’s Priorities Information Booklet' and 'The Government’s Approach – Ireland and the negotiations on the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union' documents below.
The Irish Government is determined that all possible preparations are made ahead of the UK leaving the EU. All Departments and Agencies have been charged with making Brexit a priority, with strong co-ordination at key levels across Government.
