What would Brexit mean for Ireland?

It’s been a long time coming but Brexit day is almost here.

The UK heads to the polls on Thursday to decide if they want to remain in the EU - everyone from David Beckham to Jeremy Clarkson has an opinion and the coverage is only going to intensify in the next 36 hours or so,

With Britain being our closest neighbour, Ireland obviously has a vested interest in the outcome.

With that in mind the Dublin-based Institute of International and European Affairs have put together this handy video outlining all the possible effects Britain leaving the EU could have on Ireland, including the effects on trade and the freedom of Irish people to work and travel in the UK.

And if you’re looking for a lighter look, John Oliver has tackled the subject for an American audience with his usual wit and humour - and a foul-mouthed (and biased) barbershop quartet.

Stirring.
