Proposed immigration restrictions on cross-border travel to Northern Ireland could damage integration efforts at a local level.
Yesterday, the British Government passed a bill that would see non-Irish EU citizens have to apply for a permit to enter Northern Ireland.
If approved by the House of Lords, it would come into effect in 2025.
Questions have been raised about how this would impact immigrant communities in Cavan and Monaghan who might cross the border on a daily basis.
Teresa Buczkowska, Integration Manager with the Immigrant Council of Ireland told Shannonside Northern Sound that the Irish Government must intervene, or years of good work could be undone.
