The Downshire Estate in Downpatrick will be the venue for an event to assist local businesses importing and exporting wild caught fish to and from the EU in the event of a no deal Brexit.
The event, which is being hosted by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council in conjunction with the Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, will take place on Tuesday 8 October 2019, from 10am until 1.30pm in the Great Hall, Downshire Estate, Ardglass Road, Downpatrick, BT30 6CQ.
