Brexit Response

On the 23rd of June 2016, the United Kingdom (UK) voted on a referendum to decide the future of their membership of the European Union (EU). The result of the referendum was a majority in favour of withdrawing, or exiting, from the EU. This decision is commonly referred to as ‘Brexit’.

The formal procedure for a Member State to withdraw from the EU is outlined in Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. The Prime Minister of the UK, Theresa May MP, has stated her intention to trigger Article 50 by the end of March 2017.

The Lisbon Treaty states that, following the notification of withdraw from the EU, a period of two years shall take place in order to affect the withdrawal.

This decision — Brexit — has many implications for Ireland, both north and south of the border. It presents the most significant economic and social challenge of the past 50 years.
