No grey areas when it comes to our border

Dear Sir,

I was alarmed to read the article “Taoiseach Varadkar insists Republic won’t design border in Ireland for ‘Brexiteers’” (News July 29) in which a British Government spokesperson was quoted as saying “We aim to have as frictionless a border as possible between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland…”.

Surely any border, visible or otherwise, will be between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Yours etc.

Brian Kennaway
