In the Programme for Partnership Government Annual Report 2017 of the Irish Government it is said:

BREXIT – Implications for Ireland

Since the formation of the Government we had the decision of the UK to exit the European Union. We recognise that Ireland is more exposed than any other country to the negative effects of Brexit. Since the referendum we have engaged in a major diplomatic campaign to ensure our priorities were properly understood by our European partners. These priorities are to protect the Good Friday Agreement and the Northern Ireland Peace Process, including through maintaining an open border; to continue the Common Travel Area with the UK; to minimise the impact on our trade and the economy; and very importantly to work for a positive future for the European Union. Our preparations have ensured that Ireland’s unique concerns and priorities are reflected in EU’s Negotiating Guidelines. We are only at the beginning of a long and complex process but in the meantime the priority of the Government is to help Irish businesses limit the fallout from Brexit by helping to open up new markets for Irish goods and services.
