Hot off the press ! In conjunction with my Independent Seanad colleagues, I produced a short booklet on the serious implications of BREXIT for Ireland. This year I hope to establish a cross party Seanad process of inquiry on the potential impact of BREXIT. As a member of the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement Committee and the Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Affairs, I have already been working closely with colleagues on both sides of the Border to identify the social, political and economic fallout from BREXIT. Key areas covered in the booklet include: Education and Research,the Pensions Industry, Financial and Insurance Services, Tourism and Migration and Agriculture along with Domestic Banking, Exports & Imports, Energy and Health among others. Having been one of the first to publicly comment on the issue of the hard versus soft border, I am anxious to keep BREXIT to the forefront of our political agenda. Copies of booklet available, please call my office on 01 6183323 and I will post one out to you.
