Ireland’s Call: How Brexit Got Done

Brexit altered the relationship between Ireland and the United Kingdom in a profound way and led to the resignation of four British prime ministers. It took four years for the UK to leave the European Union after the 2016 Leave vote and another four before the outstanding issues relating to Northern Ireland were finally settled in February, 2024.
Ireland’s Call tells the inside story of how Irish political leaders and officials waged a diplomatic campaign to persuade the EU that whatever the outcome of the Brexit talks there could be no hard border on the island of Ireland. Through interviews with senior figures on both sides of the Irish Sea and in Brussels the author reveals how the campaign was devised and pursued to a successful conclusion.
