A Brexit deal that works for Ireland
Securing a Brexit deal that works for Ireland, the EU and the UK is a core priority for Fianna Fáil. The UK is our nearest neighbour; traditionally our largest trading partner and crucially is also co-guarantor of the Good Friday Agreement.
Our histories are interwoven and we share strong economic, political, social and cultural bonds. As a consequence, Ireland stands to be affected by Brexit more so than any other EU member state.
Fianna Fáil is working at national and EU level to a secure a Brexit deal that addresses Ireland’s unique issues and a trading deal that is close as possible to what we have at present.
