Potential hammer blow for Donegal Fisheries in the offering

A Donegal TD has expressed fears those in the fishing industry “will be hung out to dry” in Brexit negotiations between the EU and the UK.


Donegal independent TD, Thomas Pringle claims with the apparent slowing of negotiations and possible deadlock on certain issues, Donegal’s fishing could be sacrificed in order to make headway on other issues.

Deputy Pringle cited a Bloomberg report which stated that the UK could win back control of Irish fishing waters and pave the way for the UK fishing industry to increase it’s annual catch.

He says such a move would also be disastrous for for the fisheries in Donegal.
