There is certainly concern as to how Brexit will affect the close economic and social relationship between Ireland and the UK.
European Movement Ireland recently shared a few interesting stats:
– Dublin-London route is busiest in Europe – 4.5 million passengers in 2015 travelled across the Irish Sea;
– Exports of Irish goods to the UK in 2016 were €13.3 billion that’s down 4%, or nearly €500m from 2015;
– Exports of Irish services to the UK in 2015 were €19.8 billion, while the UK exported €12 billion in services to the UK that year.
