Poll claims slight majority in North favour united Ireland

The Irish and British governments have been urged to start planning for a unity referendum after a new poll claimed a slight majority of people living in Northern Ireland now favour joining a united Ireland.

The over-65s was the only age group in the poll with a clear majority for staying in the union (55% to 34%), while 45-64s divided evenly, and a majority of those aged from 18-44 said they would vote for unification.

Meanwhile, Sinn Féin president Mary Lou McDonald urged Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Fianna Fáil leader Micheal Martin to agree a specific election date in a bid to limit any Brexit fallout damage.

Moments later, the Sinn Féin leader was asked about a €1.6m donation to the party in the will of a now deceased mechanic called William Hampton, who lived in Wales.
