This was a truly historic and momentous week across the water. As Theresa May 'celebrated' the milestone of one year as prime minister, she introduced legislation which will end Britain's membership of the European Union.

Big news for Ireland too, although you would be forgiven for missing that completely.

The Bill introduced by May effectively dismantles the laws which brought Britain into the Common Market in 1973 and transfers all EU laws into British law.
