Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is in London today ahead of a meeting with British Prime Minister Teresa May over Brexit and Northern Ireland.

Varadkar has made his views known publicly on Brexit and its understood his visit will be to reiterate his concerns that there will need to be a satisfactory solution to border issues.

The meeting comes after May’s Italian speech last Friday where she outlined her proposed two year transition period for the UK after it leaves the EU.

May had said in her speech that the border posed ‘unique issues …when it comes to Northern Ireland.’

Speaking on Rte Radio 1 this morning Simon Coveney repeated that the Irish government were not in favour of Brexit that it was damaging to Ireland and Britain.

Varadakar and May will meet today to discuss the border and the ongoing vacuum of power in the North.
