Ireland dismisses suggestion it should quit EU and join UK

Ireland has dismissed the suggestion that the best solution to the Brexit impasse might be for the country to quit the EU and join the UK.

Questioned about the possibility by the BBC Today presenter John Humphrys, Ireland's Europe minister, Helen McEntee, said it was not contemplating quitting the EU, that polls showed 92% of the population wanted to remain in the bloc, and "Irexit" was not plausible.

She told the Radio 4 programme on Saturday that, in the event of no deal, Ireland was "not planning for the reintroduction of a border", and urged the UK to honour its commitment to ensure the border remained invisible, as it had since the Good Friday peace deal was signed nearly 21 years ago.
