“It is now time to start actively planning for reunification by having a mature and inclusive discussion on what the new agreed Ireland will look like.

“We now need to see all those who support Irish unity North and South working together to secure a referendum on a united Ireland and creating the conditions where we can win it.

“No one has anything to fear from Irish unity, and it is now up to us who support it to create a new republic where everyone’s rights are protected and celebrated.”
