A no-deal Brexit will result in food, fuel and medicine shortages in Britain as well as three months of disruption at its ports and a hard border with Ireland.

That's according to a Cabinet report, known as Operation Yellowhammer, which was leaked to The Sunday Times.

But what will all of this mean for Ireland?

How would a hard Brexit impact our own ability to access food and medical supplies?

To discuss this we were joined by Dan O'Brien, Chief Economist at the Institute of International and European Affairs, Katie Daughen, Head of Brexit Policy at the British Irish Chamber of Commerce, and Anthony Staines, Chair of Health Systems in the School of Nursing and Human Sciences at Dublin City University.
