Dublin Port’s Hard Brexit Plan Was Only Sought by Department Last Month

Dublin Port, the country’s largest and busiest sea port,was only asked by the Department of Transport for details of its contingency plans to deal with a hard Brexit just over a month ago.

As The Irish Times writes, almost 90% of all road freight traffic on the island of Ireland passes through the port, which will likely face the most delays should the UK crash out of the EU without a deal next March.

Correspondence released under the Freedom of Information Act shows that a department official emailed Dublin Port Company management on November 15th – the day British prime minister Theresa May suffered a series of cabinet resignations over the proposed Brexit agreement – urgently seeking the port’s plans to deal with a potential disorderly Brexit.
