The Tánaiste and the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade launched a new website in February that seeks to keep interested citizens informed of the government’s Brexit negotiations and what the departure of the U.K. will mean for the Republic of Ireland going forward.

“This website provides a resource to learn about the work the government is undertaking to protect Irish interests in the Brexit negotiations, and the work being undertaken to address the consequences of Brexit here in Ireland,” Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Simon Coveney says.

The website is divided into three sections: “Key Documents,” “Government Engagement,” and “Research and Analysis.” Key Documents provides the Irish government’s reports on its priorities and thoughts on Brexit. Government Engagement provides the latest news on Brexit, the Irish government’s work with civic society, and support for businesses.

Research and Analysis gives the reader all of the issues, options and implications Brexit could possibly bring to Ireland. ♦

    The Six County State voted in favor of remaining in the E.U., and that seems to suggest that the Northern majority shares the views of most people in the independent Irish State. One is reminded that Northern cattle were still being imported by the U.S. when British cattle were not, because of foot and mouth disease in Great Britain. The corner of Ireland that is north of the artificial Partition is contiguous with Ireland, NOT with Britain.
