Press Notice: Carthy to host Brexit discussion panel in Meath tonight

Sinn Féin MEP, Matt Carthy, will host an important public meeting regarding the latest developments on Brexit their implications for communities in the Meath area. The event takes place, tonight, Monday the 11th of November at 7.30pm in Kells.

“We’re at a critical juncture in the Brexit process with Westminster elections only a month away” Carthy said: “Brexit will have huge socio-economic and political implications for our country and the border region in particular. Many businesses in county Meath who trade across the border or in the UK have already seen business slow and in some cases they’ve had to downsize and lay people off. The continued uncertainty has devastated many SMEs in the region. Those that stand to be further affected by Brexit have several queries and concerns. This meeting is organised so as to answer those questions. We will also discuss what recent developments will mean for the big constitutional conversation towards Irish Unity.”

The event hosted by the Midlands Northwest MEP Matt Carthy will include a keynote address by Michelle O’Neill (Sinn Fein Vice-President) and will also see contributions from Damian McGenity (Border Communities Against Brexit), commentator Andreé Murphy and Gary O’Meara CEO of Meath Enterprise.  Meath Sinn Féin Councillors Darren O’Rourke and Johnny Guirke will complete the panel.

Ahead of the public meeting, Cllr. Darren O’Rourke said “We’ve already witnessed how Brexit uncertainty is affecting business in Co. Meath. Events like this are vital in helping us all become more prepared for all possible Brexit outcomes”

“Brexit: What does it mean for Co. Meath?” takes place this Monday evening the 11th of November at 7.30pm in the Headfort Arms Hotel, Kells, Co. Meath. All are welcome. ENDS
