Brexit and the North

Glenn Patterson and SDLP MP for Belfast South Claire Hanna in conversation with Dave O’Connell

Watch live Saturday 12 September, 12.30pm

The majority in Northern Ireland voted to remain in the EU but has failed to insist on a course which is, arguably, very much in its best interests. What are the divisions within Northern society that have led to the current situation, and how will Brexit play out for the different communities there?

To deal with these questions and more, we have Glenn Paterson, novelist and author of Backstop Land and Claire Hanna, SDLP MP for Belfast South. Dave O’Connell, Editor of the Connacht Tribune, will moderate the discussion.

Claire Hanna will participate in this event via video.
