Our business and politics are in a state of uncertain flux as we commit to EU and pare UK ties
For three-and-a-half years, Brexit appeared to move at glacial pace. In the past six months, the consequences of the 2016 referendum for Ireland are moving at lightning speed.
ld certainties for us, whether it’s our businesses, our politics or even the nuances of our identity, are in a state of flux.
It isn’t just Brexit and a growing separation from the UK that’s changing on an almost weekly basis. The redrawing of global corporate tax rules, geo-political tensions between the big economic blocs and a changing relationship with our EU partners are all adding to a new sense of uncertainty for Ireland.
Perhaps it depicts a small country being forced to step out of the shadow of other larger powers, but something really feels very different.
