Poll: Do you think a united Ireland is likely to happen anytime soon?

The EU has placed provisions for a United Ireland as part of its Brexit negotiations.

THE CONCEPT MAY have appeared a distant prospect for many, but Brexit has thrown a spanner in the works to the potential for a united Ireland.

In its guidelines on Brexit, the EU voted this weekend to include a provision that would allow Northern Ireland automatically rejoin the EU should reunification with the Republic ever happen.

Both Sinn Fein and Fianna Fáil have produced documents on uniting the North and South, while a Claire Byrne Live/Amárach Research poll found that nearly half of Irish people think it is time for a united Ireland.

Next week, a new report which outlines in detail what Ireland needs to do to achieve a peaceful reunification of the island of Ireland will be discussed by the Oireachtas Joint Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement.

So today we’re asking you: Do you think a united Ireland is likely to happen anytime soon?
