Poll: Are you worried about Brexit?

There’ll be no hard border, but the long-term implications of the UK leaving the EU are still unclear.

A DEAL HAS been agreed that will guarantee no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic after the UK leaves the EU.

Speaking about the deal between Europe, Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK, Tánaiste and Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney told Morning Ireland: “There is no scenario of Brexit that will result in a hard border. We can say that this morning.”

President of the European Commission Jean Claude-Juncker said the agreement is “the result of a long and intense discussion”. Brexit negotiations can now move into their second phase, which will focus on trade.

While today’s announcement has been broadly welcomed, the long-term implications of Brexit still aren’t clear.

We want to know: Are you worried about Brexit?
