With the Scottish independence referendum poised on a knife edge, what are the implications of the potential break-up of the United Kingdom for the island of Ireland? Does the Government in Dublin have a position on the issue? What would constitutional change mean for the current political dispensation in Northern Ireland? What would the very concept of unionism mean in a reduced UK, and will all this political uncertainty accelerate the English move towards an EU exit? International Affairs Editor Patrick Smyth, Economics Editor Arthur Beesley, Spectator columnist Alex Massie and Slugger O’Toole editor Mick Fealty discuss the issues with Hugh Linehan.
