The most important thing about the Brexit referendum was to get the result right. There is no point analysing the wrong result.

I always believed that the British would leave and that was an unusual position in Ireland. However, it was not an unusual position if you spent any time working or living in England.

I think what happened - it wasn't that I dissented from a widely held view that this would be bad for Ireland - is that Official Ireland just totally got this wrong.
