RTÉ to dedicate a day of broadcasting to the impact of a No-Deal Brexit on Ireland
We are a month away from the day.
On Tuesday 1 October, thirty days to the current Brexit deadline, RTÉ will dedicate a day of its news and current affairs programmes to look at the potential fallout from a No-Deal Brexit on those living in both the north and south of Ireland.
Everything in Ireland from work, to travel, business, farming, social life and culture will be viewed through the lens of the UK leaving the EU without a deal in place, with several of the national broadcaster's key programmes to focus singularly on the potential No-Deal scenario.
It will begin on RTÉ Radio 1 with Morning Ireland at 7am, with a live broadcast from the Donegal/Derry border, which will be followed by News at One, which is set to report live from Dublin Airport on the potential impact for customs and movement through one of the country's travel hubs.
RTÉ Six One News will be broadcast from Pettigo in Donegal, featuring stories on cross-border living and the future of all-island sports, and later in the night, RTÉ Nine O'Clock News will be filmed in Clones in Monaghan, focusing on the particular challenges the area could face in the event of no-deal.
And finally, at 9.35pm, RTÉ Prime Time will focus on trade across the Irish Sea, broadcasting live from Dublin Port, and reporting on the concerns of hauliers, and the supply of food, medicines, and consumer goods.
