The re-establishment of border checkpoints would be calamitous.

That’s the view of Sinn Fein TD Caoimhghin O’Caolain who along with his party colleagues are calling for Northern Ireland to be designated with a special status within the EU.

Deputy O’Caolain says the implications BREXIT has for border counties like Cavan and Monaghan has instilled fear among people north and south of the border.

He stated that the Irish Governemnt have already began identifying location point s for full custom checkpoints along the border with the North.
