So what? The EU will still be funding the farming in the south and the business will have to adjust with EU help and find other markets in the EU or abroad.
If there are other markets out there, why have they not already been found ?

Yes the EU funding will still be there, but the majority of whole milk and beef exports goes to the UK.
The blow to Eire's farming community with actual farm profits being slashed will be dramatic and the effect of this, as agriculture is such a large part of Eire's economy will be huge

Yes their is an issue and it will have to be sorted. The Irish fleet may have to have bigger boats and catch different fish.
As simple as that.


Hey fishermen, scrap them tiddlers (boats that is ) and go and buy bigger ones.
What could be wrong with logic like that.

Hey farmers, the milk and beef price is going to collapse but look on the bright side you will still have your single farm payment.


As I said they only have the Eire government and Sf to blame, well apart from the DUP who they will blame regardless.

"Crisis - The EU Meat Industry in a Hard Brexit Scenario’ report, commissioned by Europe’s meat industry body UECBV, analyses the potential impact of a hard Brexit on the European and UK meat industry.
It found that a ‘no-deal’ outcome would lead to a collapse in trade, with a 90% drop in beef exports and 53% drop in lamb exports from the UK to the EU.

In this scenario, meat products would face greater burdens than almost any other sector.
According to the report, the industry would face higher WTO tariffs than any other sector, and face additional costs of veterinary checks, in addition to the customs checks faced by all goods.
It also warns of major disruption to supply chains, and chaos for just-in-time fresh meat delivery systems."

Ireland and is now in the happy position to take up the slack left by the UK.
You just don't get it.

The UK imports a lot more beef from the EU than it exports.

Eire exports a lot of beef to the UK.

That means there is no slack just a surplus of Eire beef to flood the EU market and further lower the price of beef in the EU.

You don't need an honours degree in maths to figure out that 90% of 1.2 is considerably greater than .425.
