There will be no hard border between Ireland and N. Ireland


Brexit negotiations have resulted in the assurance that there will be no hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Theresa May announced that that ‘we guarantee there will be no hard border in Ireland.’

She also pledged to ‘uphold the Belfast Agreement,’

‘Things are moving in the right direction’ Taoiseach Leo Varadkar told the Journal.

‘It’s in our interest that the Brexit that does happen is as soft as it can be.’

‘I think we’re getting away from this binary hard or soft idea.’

‘This is not the end but it is the end of the beginning,’ he tweeted.

'We want to build bridges, not borders. We want to free travel and free trade to continue as it does now and has done for 20 years.'

A second phase of negotiations will now begin.
