DUP Leader Says She Doesn't Want Brexit To 'Pull Up The Drawbridge' Between North and The Republic.

: 01/13/2018 - 12:20

The DUP leader Arlene Foster says she doesn't want Brexit to 'pull up the drawbridge' between the North and the Republic.

Speaking at the Killarney Economic Conference today, the leader of Northern Ireland's DUP said she often thinks the North and Republic are like a semi-detached house,saying - "The houses may look the same on the outside, but, inside, they look different and we do many things very differently."

In a speech she added it is not in her party's interests to see the Republic of Ireland do anything other than prosper, but we must all recognise that change is coming as a result of the British referendum.

Ms Foster will focus on the shared economic, cultural and social ties across the border in her speech to the conference in Killarney in County Kerry today.
