Brexit and You

Published: 18 November 2019
From: Department of the Taoiseach

The UK is due to leave the European Union. How and when they may leave is not yet certain.

The EU and the UK have agreed an extension to 31 January 2020 with the aim of ensuring an orderly withdrawal of the UK from the EU.

Irrespective of the final shape of Brexit, the decision of the UK to leave the EU will result in some changes, both here in Ireland and also for our EU partners, which we are preparing for. While there is still a lot of uncertainty, it’s important for you to be aware of what Brexit may mean for your daily life.

The information in the sections below is the latest practical advice from the Irish Government which covers a range of areas. It also works to explain the different ways that the UK decision to leave the EU may impact you.

We are working to keep this website up-to-date. Check back regularly, as information is updated as it becomes available.
