After intensive negotiations, the European Commission reached an agreement on Christmas Eve 2020 with the United Kingdom on the terms of its future cooperation with the European Union.

It is vitally important for Gaeltacht businesses that they are aware of the details of the agreement that has been reached and the actions that they must take if they are exporting to the United Kingdom or indeed further afield. Brexit will have a significant practical impact on the way that Gaeltacht companies run their businesses from now on.
