Will go through alright nobody wants to topple the proponent of brexit - May. Even the opportunist laborious party want to steer clear of that poison chalice. Tow-rag party were never lucky with female leaders, thatcher was dumb...the current one is dumber.

From www.gov.uk

"If you hold a UK driving licence you should not need an international driving permit (IDP) to drive in Ireland from 29 March 2019 as Ireland does not currently require IDPs to be held by driving licence holders from non-EU countries."

Update from my insurers - if there is a hard Brexit:
Uk driving licences (Irish residents) will not be valid in the Republic and must be exchanged for an Irish licence.
A green card must be applied for if planning to drive in NI or UK.
