    I was being sarcastic (I added a smilie). If there is no deal, then Ireland probably does need to look into defending its own airspace.

    Having said that, commercial traffic isn't going to breech Irish airspace even if there is no defense, since they risk legal problems and a lack of air traffic controls.

    I did a quick check.

    You can check the distances by right clicking on Shannon and then selecting measure distance. You then click the SW of UK marker and then click on the marker at Paris. It works out the total distance.

    Shannon to SW of UK and then over to Paris is 1,131.44 km.

    Shannon to Paris direct is 905.72 km.

    It is longer to have to bypass UK but not that much longer (+25%).

    Are you seriously suggesting that the airlines would break international law? What sort of tomfoolery is this? Not that it will ever arise anyway, because whatever the outcome of Brexshi t I think it is safe to say that short term contingency arrangements will be produced in good time to keep planes flying.

    Yeah, i’ve seen it. Less than half an hour extra in general. Which the loyalists on here think is an existential threat to Ireland forgetting that they won’t be able to land anywhere in Europe at all - even if it was five minutes away - and would have to loop up to the Artic circle or down to the Sahara desert to get to Turkey or anywhere east under the DUP deal. They are so hilariously thick.

    Another report out today saying Brexit would harm the occupied 6 counties of Ireland, but the reunification of Ireland would be a boost for the whole country - this time the report is from Dr Kurt Hubner, the famous German economist.

    When it has been commissioned, under cover, by Friends of Sinn Féin USA, perhaps…

    In the Irish News, Newton Emerson has fun with the recent Sinn Féin re-launch [and re-re-launch! – Ed] of the report they commissioned, under cover of the “Knights of the Red Branch Inc”, of the benefits of an economically right-wing united Ireland.

    i think your of course correct if unionism cannot make northern Ireland work then no one else could. Look at the great way the DUP manage their position of power.
