Travel, food and fuel top list of concerns for Irish people post-Brexit, research shows.
According to new research from Core, 58% of the population are concerned that the prices of products could rise if supply issues become a problem, with many saying customers would be worse off due to Brexit, either by price, experience or choice.
The research conducted by the marketing communications company showed that 54% are concerned about buying petrol and diesel post Brexit.
The report entitled the 'Brexit Barometer’ highlighted that three in four (77%) Irish people believe Brexit will result in the Irish economy suffering.
Finian Murphy, marketing director of Core, said that, "given the absolute uncertainty, people have been unsure about why it is important and only now it seems that the general public are beginning to consider the impact it will have on their day to day."
The research indicated 69% of the respondents said that they are anxious about the impact on travelling between the UK and Ireland as well as security at the border.
Overall, the greatest concern that Irish people have, the report showed, is the impact Brexit will have on peace and security on the Island of Ireland.
Core’s ‘Brexit Barometer’ report was compiled based on analysis of three key pieces of data: The KBC Consumer Sentiment Index, the Core Cultural Index and Core’s State of the Nation.
Each survey is based on a sample size of 1,000 Irish adults, representative of the population.
