All-Island Civic Dialogue

Taoiseach Enda Kenny and the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Charlie Flanagan convened the second Plenary meeting of the All-Island Civic Dialogue on Brexit in Kilmainham in November 2016.

This all-day event provided an opportunity to hear the voices of the people affected by the vote, both directly and through their representative groups. It also provided an opportunity to map the challenges presented by Brexit and how they might impact on different elements of society and the economy on an all-island basis.
