Via RTE News:
The EU will take a gradual approach to the question of how Ireland will have to comply with checks and controls along the Irish border in the event of a no-deal Brexit, RTÉ News understands.
Sources have portrayed a scenario where on day one of a no-deal Brexit, it will be acknowledged that Ireland is not fully in compliance with the obligations that come when a member state shares a border with a third country.
It is understood that for a period afterwards, the EU will assume a “partnership” role, allowing the Irish Government to apply the rules of the single market and customs union as best it can, while providing advice and support, whether technical or financial, over time.

Very interesting, and significant for the UK, @eurointelligence says that Ireland’s Phil Hogan is in line to be the EU’s new trade commissioner
