Martin: Expanded Irish-British council needed
Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has said there is a need for an "institutional structure between Britain and Ireland" post-Brexit.
Mr Martin said: "We tend to forget one of the best things about EU membership was that Irish officials and politicians became much more familiar and friendly with British politicians."
He said Ireland "will lose" those relationships post-Brexit. An Irish-British council "would have to be expanded", he said.
He told Newstalk yesterday he wanted a "nordic structure" where "you will have proper structure and institutions established".
"There would be regular meetings on a range of issues important to the British-Irish relationship," he added.
