Taoiseach Micheál Martin will travel to London tomorrow for a meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

It is expected the two leaders will discuss Northern Ireland, the Ballymurphy inquest, Brexit and relations between Ireland and the UK.

It is also likely they will discuss the British government's plans for an amnesty for crimes committed during the Troubles.

The Taoiseach will fly to London tomorrow to meet his counterpart over lunch.

Details of the meeting are still being worked out but it will take place at lunchtime at the British Prime Minister’s Chequers estate.

A spokesman said: “An Taoiseach Micheál Martin will be hosted by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson tomorrow.

“The lunchtime meeting, which was scheduled some time ago, is expected to cover the response to Covid-19, a range of issues relevant to peace and stability in Northern Ireland, and the broader British-Irish relationship.”
