MacManus fears Ireland may not get as much as it needs from Brexit fund

A new five billion euro EU Brexit fund won’t “alleviate the grave damage” that will be done to Ireland if the UK does not strike a trade deal with the EU by the end of the year.

That’s the stark warning of Sligo Sinn Fein MEP Chris MacManus.

EU leaders recently agreed to establish a new Brexit “adjustment reserve” fund of five billion euro (€5bn) which will offer funds to countries and sectors worst-hit by Brexit.

Speaking to OceanFM News, Chris MacManus fears Ireland won’t get as much as it will need from the fund.
