The Argus - - NEWS - Mairead McGuin­ness MEP with fel­low Fine Gael MEP Brian Hayes and the EU’s Chief Ne­go­tia­tor on Brexit, Michel Barnier.

Mairead McGuin­ness MEP and First Vice-Pres­i­dent of the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment met with the EU’s Chief Ne­go­tia­tor on Brexit, Michel Barnier, with Ir­ish MEP col­leagues in Stras­bourg re­cently.

“Mr Barnier re­peated his knowl­edge and con­cern for the Ir­ish is­sues in the Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions. He de­scribed the Ir­ish is­sues, in­clud­ing the peace process and the com­mon travel area, as EU is­sues and this is, in my view, vi­tal to us get­ting a deal which takes ac­count of our par­tic­u­lar is­sues,” said McGuin­ness.
