Brexit group says there is EU support for special deal for Ireland

There is support in the European Union for affording special circumstances to the island of Ireland following Brexit.

That’s according to a representative of the Border Communities Against Brexit campaign who are in Brussels this week to bring their case to MEPs.

In a statement the group said the prospect of a new EU border stretching from Dundalk to Derry is not acceptable to those living and working in border areas in both the North and South.

While in Brussels they aim to inform decision makers that Ireland should not be separated by two trading regimes and the imposition of customs checks.

Speaking to Ocean FM the group’s spokesperson Declan Fearon says they are receiving great support so far.
