Professor Bernard Ryan has written a paper about the Irish dimensions to a UK decision to withdraw from the EU.

It addresses the implications of withdrawal for common travel area arrangements with the Republic of Ireland and for the special status of Irish citizens in the UK.

In the paper, it is assumed that the Republic of Ireland would continue as a Member State of the EU. That has been the position of the Irish Government since the referendum was announced, and there is no evidence of significant support in the Republic of Ireland for a membership referendum, or for withdrawal from the EU.
