Ireland is seen as the most affected country by the UK’s exit from the European Union, yet paradoxically, it can reap the benefits.
Irish authorities have deployed an additional 1,500 people to handle customs and border controls.
The Port of Dublin in the Republic of Ireland is the main point of entry and exit for companies delivering products from Ireland to Europe and beyond.
The UK’s exit from the European Union means that heavy cargo vehicles entering Irish ports will no longer have to undergo lengthy and bureaucratic inspections, especially for agricultural and food products. .
“Two types of restrictions”
To explain Hazel Sheridan, Adviser to the Irish Department of Agriculture.
“Exports from the UK will be subject to two types of restrictions: first, general customs restrictions and then certain categories of exports, subject to sanitary and phytosanitary restrictions, called SPS restrictions, which will apply to all organisms and products, including plant and animal products such as meat, dairy and organic products. In finished products and embryos, the restrictions apply to animal by-products, not products intended for human consumption. “
England has always been a landlocked land bridge for Irish tow companies that send their goods to and from major European lands via various ports such as Calais and Rotterdam, always without restrictions.

Basically, Irish ports certainly do not make Brexit. Of course, they were able to achieve both possible and unexpected financial gains.
Glenn Carr, Chief Operating Officer, Rosler Port:
“We have seen a significant increase in direct shipping from Rosslair / Europort to Continental Europe. Rossouiler / Europort is the nearest Irish port to Europe.
“This is Brexit …”
Rossaler Port Management says it will take longer to depart for Cherberg, Normandy and Bilbao, Spain, but long-distance destinations will pass through easily accessible British ports in the long run.
Euro News correspondent Ken Murray, Explains:
“Over the next few months, 100 million euros will be spent on building infrastructure to cope with the extra traffic that will come here. For many haulers, freight to Continental Europe will be slower and more turbulent, but Brexit and we will begin to adapt to reality …”.
