Young Fine Gael International Committee launch Document on the Effect of Brexit on Ireland

In advance of the UK referendum on whether to remain a member of the European Union, Minister Dara Murphy (today) launched the Young Fine Gael International Committee's document on the possible effects of the United Kingdom voting to leave the EU.

International Secretary of Young Fine Gael, Eileen Lynch said “The referendum on whether the UK chooses to remain or leave the European Union will take place on the 23rd of June and we hope this document will enlighten members on the effect 'Brexit' may have on Ireland. It is important that Young Fine Gael takes a stance on this, as it affects all of our futures as young Europeans. We strongly encourage all young people in the UK to vote to remain as an EU Member State. ”

Launching the document, Minister Murphy said “Ireland’s relationship with the UK is closer than with any other EU member state. We have a unique perspective and interest in the outcome of the referendum; as a neighbour sharing a land border; as strong trading partners; and as EU members often pursuing similar objectives. The referendum is as much about the next generation as it is about the current one. I commend Young Fine Gael on the launch of this report, which makes an important contribution, from a youth perspective, to a critical issue for Ireland, the UK and Europe.”

The document, entitled ‘Looking at Brexit from an Irish Perspective: The effect that the United Kingdom leaving the European Union would have on Ireland’, analyses the referendum and some of the potential outcomes in areas such as business, economics, identity, legal considerations, the energy market and Northern Ireland.

A copy of the document is available here.
