Many local businesses enjoyed 'Brexit - An Irish Perspective' in Gorey Library last week in association with Local Enterprise Week and Mintel.

Special guest speaker James Wilson from Mintel gave a presentation which focused on what Brexit means for trade in Ireland and how it has impacted Irish consumer's confidence.

Mr Wilson concluded with a look at where the potential future opportunities for Ireland lie after the UK's departure from the EU.

With the UK set to leave the EU in March 2019, Mr Wilson, who is a Research Analyst for Mintel, focused on topics such as tourism, food and drink, and finance.

After the presentation, everyone enjoyed some refreshments.
