The Good Information Podcast: How close are we to a United Ireland?

What conditions must be met before a United Ireland comes about?

THE OPENING EPISODE of The Good Information Podcast, our brand new 15-part series, is available now.

This episode takes a look at the work we did around the idea of a shared island. Journal Media managing editor Susan Daly talks you through the key questions hovering over the island of Ireland as we head into crucial moment in Ireland’s history. With questions of Brexit and the Northern Ireland Protocol further fracturing politics in the north, are we moving more rapidly towards a shared island?

How can both nations integrate their pension, education, healthcare and political systems? What is the official mechanism by which a referendum could be brought about? Just how broad is the support for a United Ireland? 

Listen now to get a deeper understanding of the core questions facing the prospect of a United Ireland. 

You can listen to The Good Information Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. 

This work is also co-funded by Journal Media and a grant programme from the European Parliament. Any opinions or conclusions expressed in this work are the author’s own. The European Parliament has no involvement in nor responsibility for the editorial content published by the project. For more information, see here
