The Irish Government’s All-Island Sectoral Dialogue on Brexit is continuing.  CCBS Director Ruth Taillon attended the most recent consultation event on Monday 22 May in Letterkenny. This event, which attracted 160 participants, was focussed specifically on the North West and the Wider Border Region. Donegal County Council and Derry City and Strabane District Council made a joint presentation on the cross-border North West City Region initiative. This was followed by moderated panel discussions and a keynote by Mairead Maguinness MEP, roundtable discussions on the issues raised by Brexit and a presentation on engaging the North West diaspora. A further plenary event is planned for June. More information on civic dialogue events past and future can be found at
