All other Irish MEPs voted in favour of a resolution that rejected a hard Border.

Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan has voted in favour of hard Border, Irish Independent reported.

Ming, the Midlands-North West MEP voted together with far-right Eurosceptics including Nigel Farage and Marine Le Pen.

Ming later said that his vote was cast “in error” and requested to the EU authorities that his vote should be changed.

According to Irish Independent, the resolution stated that the parliament "strongly believes that it is the responsibility of the UK government to provide a unique, effective and workable solution that prevents a 'hardening' of the Border" and "ensures full compliance with the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts".

Fellow Irish MEPs voted in favour of a resolution that strongly rejected a hard border for Northern Ireland.

It is believed that the Mr. Flanagan was criticised over his vote by the Border Communities Against Brexit group.

The resolution- Ireland and Northern Ireland

The resolution issued was in response to the concerns about the possible return of a hard border.

It stated that the parliament "stresses that the unique position and special circumstances confronting the island of Ireland must be addressed in the withdrawal agreement and this in a manner fully consistent with the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts, the agreed areas of cooperation, and with European Union law in order to ensure the continuity and stability of the Northern Ireland peace process; ".

It also said that this must be done "in a manner fully consistent with the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts, the agreed areas of co-operation, and with European Union law in order to ensure the continuity and stability of the Northern Ireland peace process", Irish Independent added.
