The blue trailers of mutli-national Amazon have become a familiar sight at Rosslare, with up to 20 arriving on every sailing into the port from the French port of Dunkirk

Looking out over Rosslare Europort from the viewing point in the harbour in recent weeks, a sea of blue trailers will catch the eye instantly. They belong to the global market place of Amazon and they contain all manner of items ordered on laptops and phones right across the country.

The fact is that just a few short weeks ago, these trailers weren't a common sight at the port. But as another consequence of Brexit, the gigantic tech firm, like many other multi-nationals, is seeking to avoid the complications, tariffs, taxes and general headaches that have now become associated with the 'landbridge' between the UK and Ireland.
