Sinn Féin MEP Matt Carthy said that, since partition, Donegal and other Border areas had always suffered from socio-economic deprivation.

“There is no such thing as a soft border. The only question is, how hard?” he asked.

“In terms of the true implications for what a bad case Brexit would mean, we haven’t seen anything yet,” he said.

“We’re now in a crunch situation, the next six months could potentially define the future of Ireland for a number of decades, so we have a responsibility to ensure that our people are protected, our Border communities are protected, and our all-Ireland economy is protected.”
