Northern Ireland's newly re-elected First Minister Arlene Foster has said she "can't understand" why Taoiseach Enda Kenny would claim the peace process could be damaged by a Brexit.
The DUP leader said peace was not built by the EU. She continued: "The peace process is built between the communities in Northern Ireland, the relationship between ourselves and our closest neighbours in the Republic of Ireland and with the support of our sovereign government in the United Kingdom.
"So it's not based in terms of the European Union and I can't understand why anybody would make those kinds of remarks."
Ms Foster added that the common travel area between North and South would remain if the UK left the EU.
