Brexit -- An Irish Perspective

Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 2:15pm to 3:15pm

In partnership with Hinterland.

The UK has a Halloween appointment with destiny. If that manifests as a 'no deal' implosion, Boris's trick is unlikely to be Ireland's treat. Ireland's San Francisco Consul General Robert O'Driscoll, Derryman Matt Regan (Senior VP Government Relations with the BAYAREA Council), and Irish journalist and historian Myles Dungan, discuss the implications for Ireland of a potential 'crash out' UK exit from the European Union.
