RoI/ NI Relationship Going Forward
North South Links
The IMQS enjoys close relationships with similar professional and vocational organisations across the island of Ireland i.e. with the Institute of Quarrying , the Quarry Products Association (NI) , the Irish Association for Economic Geology and the Institute of Geologists of Ireland. In addition, the Geological Surveys in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland work closely together in providing island-wide data sets for society in general and for the extractive industries in particular. These links will survive and prosper post Brexit.
Moreover, The British Geological Survey and Geological Survey Ireland are members of Euro Geo Surveys – another link that will continue and strengthen.
