That point about a ‘united Ireland’ provision in any Brexit deal February 24, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
the Taoiseach said any Brexit deal should include language that would allow Northern Ireland to easily return to the EU in the event of an united Ireland.
Mr Kenny said the provisions that allowed East Germany to join West Germany and the EU “in a seamless fashion” after the fall of the Berlin wall offered a precedent.
He said that “in such future time, whenever that might be, were it (reunification) to occur, that the north of Ireland would have ease of access to join as a member of the European Union again . . . we want that language inserted into the negotiated treaty, the negotiated outcome, whenever that might occur.”
Or is it that a UI would supersede the ROI and NI? In which case wouldn’t the new entity as a whole be seeking to join the EU?
