Brexit: A Sectoral Overview

This paper seeks to provide a broad exploration of a number of Brexit-related challenges facing the Irish economy. In order to achieve this, the paper draws on a broad selection of Brexit-specific literature, reports and other documents from an Irish perspective. Additionally, some UK and EU Brexit-related literature sources are drawn upon in order to establish a knowledge base around some of the implications of Brexit that may arise for the Irish economy. By doing so, the paper aims to contribute to the analysis being undertaken on the implications of Brexit for the Irish economy, particularly given the country’s exposure and close proximity to the UK economy.
