Northern Ireland? Do you know how many 'Brits' in Northern Ireland have applied for Irish passports since the Brexit referendum? It has risen by 70%. It might be that not only Scotland votes to leave the Union if/when Brexit goes through. No need for the Republic to invade, the Northerners might make up their own minds. After all, they don't get a mention in the Olympics. It's 'Team GB'.
My gut senses tell me that another Scottish referendum could return a result to stay with the UK. I'd personally vote to leave, but I'm not sure that enough of my fellow Scots feel a strong enough desire to cut out Westminster. In my mind, it isn't a desire to be rid of England and the English. That is an absurd stance. I just don't like how the union works (or rather doesn't work). Brexit is a disaster that could damage the whole UK. There will always be a kind of union between Scotland and England, even with independence for Scotland. There is too much shared history and blood, to say, we will not talk and cooperate. It would just be a different kind of relationship. And lets not forget Wales and Northern Ireland are partners in this union too.
Not all EU countries are in the Union. The Union has 28 member countries only. Without any offense please, while living in Dubai is an excuse for you not knowing anything, why do you ask others living in the UAE and Pakistan? I could answer your questions, but to be honest, that would be way to much to write. Offer: you google European Union, advantages/disadvantages/Brexit and if there is something you don't understand, come back and ask a specific question. Regarding restrictions, one can assume at the moment only. It will take around 2 years to come to agreements. Another question is, if there will be found an agreement that Scotland and Ireland stay members. Nobody knows yet. I personally can't see any pros regarding the Brexit. Just a lot of disadvantages, which will not only have a negative effect economically, but also politically.
The Brits recenly have gotten angry about their own people, because they wanted the United Kindom (of Wales, England, Scotland, and NORTHERN Ireland) to leave the EU. No British politician wanted it, but a public vote is a public vote, and if they want to halfways keep their face, they must start the "Brexit" prcess; the European Union has been lenient on them long enough. What is not solved, however, is the "Irish question". In my opinion, it would be fair to ask the people in Ulster whether they want to join the EU and thus, the Republic of Ireland, or stay with Britain.
Well Scotland is good for England because they have oil in the North Sea. If Scotland left, Scotland could keep all the oil for itself and England wouldn't get any of it. Northern Ireland is of no benefit to England, it is a burden if anything. The English Government sends out a 10b Pound block grant out to Northern Ireland every year just to keep the country going and Northern Ireland doesn't put anything back into the economy. England would be much better off if Northern Ireland left the union. England and Scotland however, are better together.
No, Brexit will be the guinea pig for telling if a country will succeed or collapse after leaving. As an N.Ireland citizen, the negatives far outweigh the positives of Brexit. Most of our agriculture industry relies heavily on the EU for funding and distribution. Northern Ireland's border with Ireland is going to cause havoc with the peace process if there's a return to the hard border. N.I science and engineering will likely see funding cuts as that comes from EU as well. Brexit was not a democratic decision. England has the largest population by far. It was not a UK decision, if it were then the individual countries would have been able to make their own decision. May have meant the end of the UK but that would have been proper democracy.

Northern Ireland Could Be Brexit's Biggest Casualty If the ever-stalling Brexit negotiations range in character from bewildering to boring, there was at least something familiar about them this week. To wit, the idea that a border wall could be coming, and that someone else was going to pay for it. It wasn’t President Trump offering his take on the U.K.’s impending exit from the EU. Rather, it was British lawmaker Kate Hoey, stating her own vision for what should happen if a hard border returned between Ireland (part of the EU) and Northern Ireland (part of the U.K.).

Implications in crossing the Ireland/Northern Ireland land border for an American My fiancee is a us citizen, she recently arrived at dublin airport where her passport was stamped with a 90 day visa. However her final destination is Northern Ireland (where i live) she needs a Uk border stamp. As she hasn't gotten the stamp is she here illegally? She will be staying with me for around 5 months which is more than the 90 days she was given in Ireland. So when we depart from Dublin to go back to America, they will think she has been staying in ireland illegally. Is there anyway around this problem?
Travelling to Northern Ireland from Republic of Ireland I am a non EU National and currently residing in Ireland.

Driving in Ireland and Northern Ireland I am going on a road trip for ten days in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. I read the various posts about adapting to driving on the left side. I am aware of the difference in speed indication in km/h and mph. I also read about speed limits and drunk driving laws. I booked a rental car with fully comprehensive insurance in Dublin. I am planning to got to Northern Ireland and back.My question is, are there any other things to care about when driving in Ireland? E.g. (dangerous) road conditions, radar/speed control, local driving habits, fuel/gas stations (payment/credit cards), animals, driving license (German), weather, etc.?(In Iceland, for example, one has to pay for every animal (e.g., sheep) damaged in car accidents.)

Why might the Catholics in Northern Ireland want union with the Republic of Ireland?
