Ireland should consider rejoining Commonwealth says Fine Gael senator

Fine Gael Senator Frank Feighan has said Ireland should consider rejoining the Commonwealth.

He said relations were now at “an all-time high’’ with the new Commonwealth, adding the Queen had only a titular role in it since 1971 and with such high numbers of the Irish diaspora now living in Australia, Canada and New Zealand the commonwealth has changed.

The senator was speaking on North West Today this morning
