The 29th March marked the next milestone in the UK’s process of departing the European Union as Prime Minister Theresa May triggered Article 50.

As Minister Flanagan’s statement in reaction to Prime Minister May’s letter makes clear, this moment marks the beginning of a long and complex set of negotiations but Ireland is ready for these negotiations.
