Retail Ireland statement in response to new UK travel restrictions

December 21, 2020

Retail Ireland, the Ibec group that represents the Irish retail sector, today said that due to Brexit, retailers have comprehensive contingency plans in place to manage any disruption to supply chains from and through the UK. 

Supply chains between Ireland and the UK continue to operate as normal and direct connections between Continental Europe are available should there be any ongoing issues with the UK land bridge. Retailers are fully stocked for Christmas and stores will continue to be restocked on a daily basis. There is absolutely no need for customers to buy any more than they normally would.
