Sinn Féin MEP says his party should be commended for its role in Brexit negotiations

Sinn Féin MEP Matt Carthy says that his party should be commended on the role it played in the current Brexit deal.

While he said that there was no such thing as a good Brexit deal, he added that it was his party that “brought forward the special status arrangement for Northern Ireland”.

Speaking on a panel to The Joe Finnegan Show, the Sinn Féin MEP also said that the DUP should not have been allowed to become such a dominate voice in Brexit negotiations.

He also paid tribute to the Irish government for their role in the Brexit deal but said that he would “hate to think of where we would be if Micheál Martin was leader”:
