Calls for Extra Ferries to France in Event of No-Deal Channel Chaos

Food processors and the farm organisations have expressed serious concerns that Ireland’s multi-billion-euro export trade to the European mainland could be halted by chaos at the English Channel ports in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

British warnings of possible gridlock at Dover and other ports have cranked up the pressure on the Irish Government to outline contingency measures.

It is understood that IBEC has called for funding to be set aside in the Budget to support a direct daily ferry service from Ireland to the continent in the event of the English Channel ports being effectively closed.
