IRHA stages protest at Dublin port


The Irish Road Haulage Association (IRHA) held a short protest at Dublin Port this morning, Thursday, January 21, before handing in letters of protest to the Taoiseach and the President of the EU Commission, highlighting what it claims are the “serious and far-reaching challenges” hauliers are facing due to Brexit.

Around 30 trucks assembled at Lusk Services on the M1 before proceeding to Dublin Port, where they highlighted the problems hauliers have been facing since January 1.

In the letter to the Taoiseach, Micheal Martin the IRHA claimed the approach being adopted by the authorities at the Irish Ports is creating an “unmitigated mess” in the post-Brexit environment, which is fundamentally undermining Irish trade and commerce.

In the letter to EU president Ursula von der Leyen the IRHA asked the Commission to intervene to address the “serious and concerning obstructions” to trade from Ireland arising from the imposition of border and custom’s controls associated with Brexit.
