Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The BBC estimate that there are 110 million border crossings each year - and that doesn't include many unmonitored crossing points.  Most of these crossings are by private cars.

Approximately a quarter to a third of N. Ireland's imports and exports are to/from the Republic. Many company's supply chains cross the border many times - e.g. Guinness and Baileys and lots of smaller businesses along the border. Many towns, farms and private homes straddle the border, and some roads cross it several times.

It would be ironic if we recreated the border on the 70th. anniversary of the traumatic creation of the India Pakistan border which resulted in the death and displacement of millions of people.
