Audience Call Out
Britain’s vote in June to leave the European Union has once again sparked a debate about the future position of Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom. The North voted by 56 per cent to remain in the European Union putting it at odds with the majority of voters who said the UK should leave the EU. Out of the UK’s 12 electoral regions, only Northern Ireland, Scotland and London voted to remain.
The outcome immediately saw the issue of Irish unity raised again. And as recently as September 2016, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said the possibility of Irish unity must be considered in Britain’s negotiations to leave the EU, so that both parts of a unified Ireland could be part of the EU.
