Casserly highlights the impact of Brexit

Cllr. Vicki Casserly, Mayor for South Dublin County Council, has highlighted the impact that Brexit will have on the people of South Dublin in a recent meeting with  Michel Barnier. Mayor Casserly met with Mr. Barnier recently on a visit to the European Commission and Parliament hosted by Frances Fitzgerald MEP. Commenting on the meeting, Mayor Casserly said: “I thanked Mr. Barnier and his whole team for the incredible work that they have done in concluding the Brexit negotiations and for securing a Withdrawl Agreement with the United Kingdom that safeguards the Good Friday Agreement.  The solidarity and understanding that Mr. Barnier and his team have shown to Ireland cannot be understated.”

“I brought my concerns and those of the people of South County Dublin to the meeting and explained how we need to maintain the closest possible relationship with our UK partners post Brexit to ensure that jobs, security and peace is not compromised on the island of Ireland. I urged Mr. Barnier and his UK Taskforce to remember the people of South Dublin during the next stage of Brexit negotiations.” Mayor Casserly also thanked Frances Fitzgerald MEP for facilitating the meeting and for her continued hard work in the European Parliament for the people of Dublin
