Brexit Blamed For Bringing Halt To Shopping Centre Trains


Share this article


It's been blamed for causing many headaches, but now Brexit is being accused of... bringing toy trains to a halt.

Companies that run the children's attractions at shopping centres across Ireland say they're finding it harder to get cover from UK-based insurance companies.

It's been suggested that they have become more reluctant to offer policies amid the uncertainty caused by Brexit.

Karl Fleming runs children's trains at Liffey Valley and the Pavilions centres, which are parked up for now.

He said Brexit is already having a knock-on effect on the entire leisure industry in Ireland.

"Brexit is being blamed as the reason why we can't renew our insurance at the moment", he said.

He explained that "there seems to be a total collapse of the insurance industry in Ireland".

"In all leisure activities it's a major issue, seven play centres have closed since Christmas in Ireland", he said.
