Flanagan Says United Ireland More Likely Post-Brexit

Foreign Affairs Minister Charlie Flanagan has warned that Brexit is a ‘proper mess’.

He’s told the BBC that the UK’s decision to leave the European Union is one of the greatest challenges facing Ireland since the Independence of the State.

Minister Flanagan’s also admitted that a united Ireland is more likely, but doesn’t think now is the time for a border poll.


He’ll meet later with the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier – who yesterday warned that a post-Brexit border will exist on this island in some shape or form.

Minister Flanagan says its important the upcoming negotiations are done in the right way.
