British Prime Minister Teresa May is to travel to Dublin today to meet the Taosieach amid growing Brexit fears.

British PM Teresa May is to visit Ireland today amid growing fears over how Brexit will take shape between the two countries.

May had stated two weeks ago in her Brexit speech that the UK and Ireland have always had a ‘special relationship’ and that she wanted to maintain a common travel area. However as since been discussed the common travel area may not be Ireland’s to negotiate as the border now represents a border between the EU and Britain.

There appears to be little appeal in Europe for a special trade arrangement between the UK and Ireland.

It’s expected that May’s visit today will focus on border controls, customs and security checks.

Before her visit to Dublin May will host a meeting in Cardiff this morning with the Joint Ministerial Committee (JMC) which organises relationships between Downing street and the devolved administrations of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Agriculture and in particular live export has already been affected between the two countries and its expected that this will also be a talking point for May’s visit today.

We will provide updates on this story as the day develops.
