At the Port of Cork there has seen a 10% increase in container traffic in the past six weeks.

With a new €86m container terminal due to be commissioned in Ringaskiddy later this year, the port company said it is preparing for a Brexit bounce, with direct services to the continent already expanding.

Cork is a Tier 1 port of national significance, along with Dublin Port and Shannon Foynes.

It is responsible for between 15% and 20% of the overall tonnage that passes through Irish ports and handles an average of 10m tonnes of cargo every year.

Brexit had presented as a threat, but thanks to direct services to the continent, such as the twice-weekly CLdN service between Cork and Zeebrugge, container volumes are up 10% over the past six weeks on this time last year.

CLdN introduced its direct Cork-Zeebrugge service last May The company said "booming demand" has led to the introduction of a second weekly call on the service.
