Leaving the EU, Ireland will regain sovereignty, get its wealth back by repossessing its natural resources, fisheries and sub-terrain assets.

Recipients of both the UK and Irish retirement pensions will note the recent UK increase is twice the percentage of the paltry Irish increase. Who said Brexit would make people less well off?
