'Brexit, the protocol, and the war in Ukraine were among the issues discussed'

The Foreign Affairs Minister and his British counterpart have agreed to work closely on a range of issues, including the Brexit protocol. Simon Coveney and James Cleverly met at the Irish embassy in London for a working dinner last night.

Brexit, the protocol, and the war in Ukraine were among the issues discussed. Meanwhile, Neale Richmond is Fine Gael's spokesperson on European Affairs and says there's a tight timeline to get the ball rolling on the talks.

"There are two staging points on Tuesday; the Protocol Busting Bill is tabled in the House of Lords and that has six weeks to run. Then we are due to have elections called in Northern Ireland by the 28th of October," he continued.

"There is a huge will and requirement to have serious progress by the end of October by the very least."
