The Brexit Briefing

Event Date: 19 May 2016

We are pleased to sponsor The Brexit Briefing, in association with The Times Ireland Edition, which will take place on Thursday, 19 May at 6.30pm in the Intercontinental Hotel.

If the UK decides to leave the EU there are potentially huge political and economic repercussions for Ireland, including the re-introduction of border controls between the Republic and Northern Ireland. A Brexit would also have far-reaching implications for the future of the EU.

A panel of experts, chaired by John Walsh, deputy editor of The Times Ireland Edition will chair the briefing, as they discuss the implications of a possible British exit from the EU.

The panel includes:

Michael McDowell: Senator and barrister, former leader of the Progressive Democrats, Attorney General, Minister for Justice and Tánaiste.
Oliver Kamm: Leader writer and columnist, The Times
Daniel Finkelstein: Columnist, leader writer and Associate Editor of The Times
Allie Renison: Institute of Directors Head of Europe and Trade Policy
John McGrane: Director General of the British Irish Chamber of Commerce

Among the issues that will be discussed are the likely result of the referendum; the political implications of a yes or no vote; the implications for Ireland; what would be the economic consequences of a Brexit; what would be the consequences for the EU; and, what type of a deal would Britain be able to negotiate with the EU if it leaves.
