Brexit: Ireland Will Not Accept Checks On Irish Goods

According to Reuters, Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said on Tuesday that Ireland will not allow its desire to keep the Irish border open if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal to result in checks on Irish goods at ports on the European mainland.

Coveney told parliament, โ€œIreland is not going to allow a situation where the UK leaving the European Union without a deal drags Ireland out of the single market with it.

What I mean by that is checks in EU ports on all Irish products, that is not a runner and would cause significant damage to our economy so we will not allow it.โ€
