Michael Healy-Rae, who’s the Oireachtas chairman on European affairs, says he’s extremely disappointed by the UK’s decision.
The Kerry independent TD says the UK’s shunned the values of international cooperation and free movement of goods, services and individuals.
Deputy Healy-Rae says Britain’s decision is an affront to our society.
He believes it’s possible the UK could impose visa requirements on Irish citizens working in the UK.
The Kerry TD says immigrants bound for the UK will now come to Ireland, resulting in a possible drop in wages for workers.
