Sinn Féin MLA Martin McGuinness has welcomed a commitment from An Taoiseach Enda Kenny to bring forward proposals for an All-Ireland Forum on Brexit.

Martin McGunness said: 

“I welcome the commitment from An Taoiseach Enda Kenny at the British Irish Association in Oxford last night to bring forward proposals for an All-Ireland Forum on Brexit. 

"Given the enormous implications for all the people of this island and the democratically expressed desire of the people of the north to stay in Europe, this forum needs to happen as a matter of the utmost urgency.

“I also note his comments on the need for a discussion on Irish unity. Ending the artificial partition of Ireland in a peaceful and democratic manner should be a political priority for the Irish government - and even more so now in the context of Brexit. This discussion should take place in a mature an informed manner.”
