The Irish Question - to make or break Brexit?

Nov 27, 2017, 09:19 PM

The Irish border has emerged as a huge sticking point in the Brexit negotiations with the Taoiseach leo Vardaker asking the UK for a formal written guarantee that there will be no hard border with Northern Ireland.

This comes ahead of a crunch summit in December when European leaders will decide whether withdrawal talks can move into Phase 2 and onto the matter of post Brexit trade.

We're joined by Bernard Purcell, the editor of The Irish World to discuss the issue and to talk about the latest developments.
