In the latest episode of "One More Question," we sit down with former Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny to discuss Ireland's relationship with Britain, and the EU, in a post-Brexit world.
"Ireland is quite unique in the sense that it has a very longstanding relationship with the United Kingdom, being our closest neighbor, and our closest trading partner. But we're a member of the European Union and we'll stay as such. Clearly the matters of trade and relationships with that European Union are what is critical here. So what we've set out in terms of Ireland, are our common travel area, which we've had since 1922, With the United Kingdom, the protection of that, the border where, when Brexit is completed, the only land border will be internal to Ireland, and we are not having a return to a hard border, which brought with it sectarianism before. We want to maintain all trading links with Britain, and we're subjected to quite detailed challenges here in terms of the Agri-food sector in particular. Fishing is another area which will be quite complex and finally, our relationship with the European Union. So, we support Britain in saying we want to have the closest possible relationship. How you work that out is the question."
