An Irish company which mainly exports to the UK said on Tuesday that it faces an uncertain future, as Brexit talks remain stalled. Ann Murray, Managing Director with Lir Chocolates said that “it’s very difficult to plan to the unknown.” 80 percent of the company’s exports are to the UK. Britain and the European Union came close to agreeing on key Brexit divorce terms, including how to maintain an open Irish border after the U.K. including Northern Ireland leaves the EU. But a deal was scuttled at the last minute when the DUP, which keeps the government of British Prime Minister Theresa May in power, would not back it.
