Apprehension on Irish Boundary over Possible return to violence in No-Deal Situation

Last updated on October 1, 2019

Since Boris Johnson’s new strategy to manage Brexit along with the Irish boundary becomes ready to be disclosed, the progress reports of his backstop replacement have been convicted by the Irish authorities.

The British government is known to have put forward the concept of producing what are explained as customs clearance zones on each side of the boundary.

The suggestions are thought to use tracking technology in addition to customs declarations from the zones.

Concerns are mounting in the island of Ireland that when a No-Deal Brexit occurs, customs checkpoints might be reintroduced along with the violence which watched 3,500 people killed between 1969 and 1994 could re-emerge.

When power-sharing has been agreed under the conditions of 1998’s Good Friday agreement, many expected the violence has been over once and for all.

Regardless of the recent killing of journalist Lyra McKee by dissident Irish voters, Eamonn Mallie, co-author of this publication’s Provisional IRA’ does not think a full-blown yield to violence will occur:

“I believe that the feelings and the thoughts are so powerful on either side of the boundary which we do not always need to expect the behavior of dissident republicans or some other colors of republicanism.”
