John O'Dowd urges public support for series of anti-Brexit border protests

 The border area around Newry and County Louth Picture Mal McCann.

A SERIES of protests highlighting the negative impact of Brexit will take place today along the border.

Organised by Border Communities Against Brexit, the protests will be held at 3pm at six locations – Carrickcarnon between Newry and Dundalk; Moybridge on the Monaghan-Tyrone border; the Strabane-Lifford border crossing; Bridgend in Derry, and two separate protests at the Belcoo-Blacklion bridge and Agahalane, both on the Fermanagh-Cavan border.

Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd encouraged people to support the campaign group.

"It is clear there is growing concern across the north, but particularly in border areas, about the impact of Brexit," he said.

"A hard EU border on the island of Ireland would have hugely negative consequences north and south."
