Video: Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness calls for border poll in event of Britain leaving EU


A border poll on the reunification of Ireland should be held if Britain votes to leave the EU, Martin McGuinness said.

The Sinn Fein leader predicted any exit would be against the democratic wishes of the Irish people.

Mr McGuinness added: "Ireland's place north and south is in Europe and leading change in Europe.

"If Britain votes to leave the European Union then that could have huge implications for the entire island of Ireland and, given all the predictions, would run counter to the democratic wishes of the Irish people.
