An Tánaiste Simon Coveney will address a public meeting local TD Pat Deering is hosting in Carlow to discuss "Brexit, what’s next for Ireland".

Deputy Deering said the meeting will be held on Monday, April 15 at 8.30pm in the Seven Oaks Hotel, Carlow and will be an important opportunity to discuss the issues we face surrounding Brexit.

On the panel to discuss Brexit will be Rachel Doyle, Carlow native and founder of The Arboretum and board member of the horticultural division at Board Bia, Joe Healy IFA President and Minister Simon Coveney, Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs.

Deputy Deering said: "Brexit is approaching every day. This is not a time for political instability and disorder in Ireland as has been demonstrated in London over the last week.

"There is no greater contrast in Brexit preparations than the current set of unique circumstances with a united and determined approach from the Irish Government which has never once wavered from our key commitments as compared to the division in Westminster."

He added: "Our Government programme focuses on Brexit, job creation, investment in infrastructure including health and housing, and meeting the needs of hard-working Irish families.

"We are determined to ensure the social and economic progress made since 2016 can continue.

"There has been and continues to be huge amount of work in preparation for all contingency plans for Brexit.

"Some here in Carlow may think Brexit will not have a major impact on their lives. It will impact us all, no matter what shape it arrives in and we have to be prepared."
