“The decision of the UK people to leave the European Union is one of the most significant events to occur in the history of the EU. Because of our geographic, social and economic ties with the UK, Ireland will experience the greatest impact of this decision among EU countries. It is imperative that Ireland acts now in order to preserve its current relationship with the UK.”
