Wexford’s Senator Malcolm Byrne has been appointed to the high-profile Seanad Brexit Committee which on behalf of the Oireachtas shall look at how Brexit is impacting on various parts of society and how legislators should respond.
The twelve-member committee will look at issues as diverse as trade, agriculture, education and transport – all key issues to Wexford.
Senator Byrne said he was honoured by the appointment.
“I’ve been talking about the challenges of Brexit for several years, including organising a well-attended ‘Brexit and Wexford’ conference. There will be profound changes in the relationships on these islands while our bonds with continental Europe will deepen further,” he told WexfordLocal.com
