SINN Féin Councillor Sharon Duddy has said the Irish government and EU need to stand firm to protect small businesses in the Derry/Donegal area from Brexit.
She said: “There is no such thing as a good Brexit for businesses in the north, whether it comes with a deal or not.
“The uncertainty created by Brexit has caused concern right across the business sector in the north.
“Small businesses here depend on all-Ireland trade and the possibility of the imposition of a Brexit border could have a devastating impact on the sector.
“We now need to see the Irish government and the EU 27 standing firm to protect the interests of the business community in the north from the reckless and delusional Brexit agenda of the British Tories.”
