Extremely interesting.

Enda Kenny is currently in the Dáil discussing the potential political and social impact that Britain's decision to withdraw from the EU will have on Anglo-Irish relations, especially in relation to Northern Ireland.

The Taoiseach is proposing that all parties adopt a common political policy in response to what he has called a 'political earthquake'. Today FM's political correspondent Gavin Reilly has stressed that the Taoiseach is actively pushing for Westminster, Dáil Eireann and Stormont to preserve a common travel area and maintain an open border on the island of Ireland.

Brexit will obviously have a huge political impact on Northern Ireland, the extent of which is currently unknown, but a Twitter user by the name of Seamas O'Reilly has raised some excellent points.

FYI, as these tweets are all linked together in chronological order, it's best to scroll down to the very bottom of the page and read upwards.
