What a government might consider (if we had one)

If the UK votes to leave the EU how, I wonder, will this affect Ireland, north and south?

If the north leaves the EU, what then for us living on both sides of the Irish border?

Will the customs posts be put back on the frontier? Will we have to bring our passports as we go one way or the other way up and down?

Will the euro be of no value in the north and sterling the same here south of the border?

Where will this leave the peace process and all the good work put into it?

Have the UK and Irish Governments thought all this through? But then we here in the south have not got a government yet.
