Brexit represents the single greatest economic and foreign-policy challenge to the Irish state since the Second World War. There is hardly any area of Irish life that won’t be affected.
Presented by Penguin Random House Ireland, Brexit Live will visit Dublin, Limerick, Galway, Cavan, Dundalk and Belfast. Our panel of experts – including RTE Europe Editor Tony Connelly, Irish Times journalist Fintan O’Toole, and Alison Cowzer of Dragon’s Den, chaired by Lise Hand of The Times – will discuss and debate exactly how Brexit will change our lives.
There will also be the chance to ask our panel your own burning questions about Brexit and Ireland.
Brexit represents potentially the single greatest economic and foreign-policy challenge to the Irish state since the Second World War. There is hardly any area of Irish life that won't be affected.
More than any other journalist, RTE's long-time Brussels correspondent Tony Connelly has been helping the public make sense of the implications of Brexit for Ireland. Now, he tells the dramatic inside story of the Irish response to this political and economic earthquake and lays out the agenda for the uncertain years ahead.
Based on extensive interviews with insiders in Dublin, London, Belfast and Brussels, Brexit and Ireland is full of insights about how the EU actually works, and of colourful and revealing stories from the corridors of power. It is a must-read for anyone who cares about Ireland's future.
