Cabinet Ministers are considering contingency plans for a very worst case scenario Brexit.
Three memos have been brought to cabinet by the Tánaiste updating preparations for a UK crash out.
The memos deal with a number of areas from shipping and traffic congestion in our ports, to social welfare payments, advice for businesses and provisions around the Common Travel Area.
Tánaiste Simon Coveney says the government can't sugar coat how bad a no deal Brexit would be.
Speaking to reporters today, Minister Coveney says, "it will be a fundamental disruption to how the all island economy functions today in such a seamless way and I think it will put strain and stress not only that trade but on the political systems that back it up too."
The Dáil is about to break for summer - and when TDs return to work in September there will only be a matter of weeks left to avoid no deal.
