Taoiseach, Enda Kenny and Foreign Affairs Minister Charlie Flanagan will today host the All-Island Civic Dialogue on Brexit at Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin. This event is an important part of the Government's ongoing preparations regarding Brexit and will see around 300 representatives from North and South meet to discuss the challenges posed by the UK's decision to leave the EU.

The Dialogue will be an opportunity to hear directly from people from all parts of the Island, representing a broad range of civic society groups, trade unions, business groups, non-governmental organisations and representatives from political parties. The outcome from the Dialogue will inform the next phase of the Government’s consultation process with wider society.

Join the conversation using #allislanddialogue.

This event is part of a larger, ongoing process of consultations and engagement being undertaken by the Government on Brexit and its impact across the island. In the coming weeks, there will be the North South Ministerial Council and the British Irish Council. There will also be further sectoral consultations, Cabinet Committee meetings and meetings with our European counterparts across a range of sectors.

A list of attendees is here.
