Brexit Series - Implications for Irish Agriculture

Wednesday April 26th 10:00 to 13:00 (Registration from 9:30)

Royal Irish Academy, Dawson Street, Dublin 2

3 CPD Points 

The UK is the most important market for Irish agri-food, taking 43% of exports.  Given that 80% of Irish beef and dairy produce is exported, the impacts of Brexit will certainly be very significant for this sector.  Will we soon see the introduction of tariffs on Irish food crossing in to the UK and a customs border between north and south? These and more issues vital to Irish agriculture will be examined by a panel of expert speakers from industry, politics, academia and practice.  


Confirmed speakers and chair

  • Wendy Hederman, Partner, Mason, Hayes and Curran - Chair
  • Damian McDonald, Director General IFA - Opening address
  • Tom Tynan, Cabinet of Commissioner Phil Hogan, DG Agriculture, European Commission - Brexit from a Brussels Perspective

  • Prof. Joseph McMahon, Dean of Sutherland School of Law, UCD and leading global expert on agriculture and trade - Brexit, Trade and Agriculture: Waiting for Answers
