Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson today launched the first in a series of monthly newsletters designed to keep people here updated on the Brexit negotiations.
Speaking at the launch in Newry, Martina Anderson said:
“With the Brexit negotiations now formally underway it is vitally important that people know what is happening.
“These negotiations will shape our future, our relationships on this island and with Europe.
“The British government wanted these negotiations to be conducted in secret but I and my Sinn Féin colleagues worked hard to ensure there would be openness and transparency.
“As part of that commitment to transparency I will be publishing a monthly newsletter on what is happening in the negotiations and how its impact on Ireland.
“The first issue of that newsletter was launched today in Newry where I and my party colleagues Sinead Ennis, Mickey Brady and John O’Dowd gave an update on Brexit and our demand for designated special status for the north within the EU.
