Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring (left)has warned the Senior Alert Scheme could be at risk from a hard Brexit

Speaking to the Irish Examiner, Mr [Michael] Ring said the Senior Alert Scheme, which provides security and comfort to elderly people living alone in isolated areas across the country, is one of the areas [of concern around a hard Brexit]  that have been identified by his department.

He said that some of the pendants worn by elderly people, which are used to raise an alarm if they get into difficulty, are sourced in the UK and so the supply of these could be impacted.

“There are one or two issues that we would have concern about; one is in relation to the Senior Alert Scheme, a lot of that equipment comes from Britain,” said Mr Ring.

Utterly ridiculous.

    Porsche is telling UK dealerships there’s a contingent 10% surcharge on vehicles for delivery in April.

    So, there may be issues with the alert devices, but the issue is probably will there be an extra tenner added to the cost.

    Scaremongering galoot seeking relevance.

    Sourced from the UK who probably source them from Asia. A quick trip to Ali express will probably get a wholesaler to do a deal. Problem solved.
