Oireachtas TV

Ireland's economy will still grow next year even if there is a hard Brexit, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said.

Insisting that the Government is prepared for a worst case scenario, Mr Varadkar told the Dáil that the economy is “so strong, we’d continue to grow and not go into recession”.

He added that it is 'noteworthy to recognise the contrast between the political situation here in Dublin and the political situation in London' and that 'whatever happens, Ireland will remain at the heart of the European Union'.
