I am a barrister and law lecturer, based in Athlone Institute of Technology. I was commissioned by
the Environmental Pillar and NIEL (Northern Ireland Environment Link) to produce an independent
report on the role of the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement (hereinafter the GF/BA) in maintaining
cross-border environmental co-operation on the island of Ireland post-Brexit. The Committee have
been provided with a copy of my full submission in writing, and a copy of the report “Brexit, The
Good Friday/Belfast Agreement and the Environment: Issues arising and possible solutions” published March 2019.
