Our rights, economy and agreements must be protected.“The antics on display at Westminster show clearly the complete disregard the British Government has for Ireland, especially our border communities,” he added. “We have stood together in the North West to defend the Good Friday Agreement and the interests of the Irish people.“We will not allow the British elites and the DUP to wreck all that we have gained from the peace process.”‘We will not let Brexit destroy peace process’ – Mac Lochlainn was last modified: March 31st, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
