Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

There are rumblings of discontent in Ireland now too, farming/agriculture depend so much on trade with the UK and the north, and have done for many, many years.

Kenny is having a political headache at home, as a result. Criticism and blame are flying and there's a real sense that Ireland will not put up with tight restrictions on trade with its close friend: UK.

That particularly headache will spread to the EU, and even if Kenny doesn't remain in power, I would think that Ireland will continue to be strongly vocal against harsh trade treatment of the UK by the EU.

Oh that lovely paradox: the cracks are widening, while the ties that bind..
