The prospect of a future border poll on the reunification of Ireland should be included as part of the negotiations between the EU and the United Kingdom on the Britain’s departure from the bloc, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has stated.

Speaking at the MacGill summer school in Glenties yesterday evening, Mr Kenny did clarify that he did not favour such a vote at present and added that he did not think the conditions for such a vote existed at present.

Reaction to his comments is sure to be interesting - one commentator this morning suggesting his remarks, which were off script, is akin to the opening of a ‘Pandora’s Box’.
