DUBLIN (Reuters) - Brexit is weighing heavily on the minds of Irish small and medium enterprise customers, the chief executive of the Bank of Ireland (BIRG.I) said on Monday.

“Listening to the emotional rhetoric out of London, it is pointing in the direction of a no-deal Brexit being a real risk,” Francesca McDonagh said in an interview.

“Our advice to business owners is to speak to us to be as ready as they can be for what will be an uncertain period.”
