Coveney calls for North deal to 'involve all five parties'

Sinn Fein and DUP agree powersharing deal can be done by end of June

Shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said the talks had begun badly because Mrs May lacked authority and a mandate. "It's not clear what her mandate is, and she has lost authority overseas".

Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party will not agree a deal to support Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives in government before the start of next week at the earliest, a DUP source said on Friday.

It seems like an addiction of sorts and often comes back to bite them, as it did with British Prime Minister Theresa May when her attempt to get a bigger majority for her Conservative Party with a snap general election backfired on her last week.

O'Neill told reporters outside the Dail they are also committed to getting a government up and running in the North.

However, Minister Coveney has said that as Ireland is one of the 27 European Union member states, "we will be negotiating from a position of strength". "I think it will not actually make as dramatic a difference as people think". "We don't want arbitrary caps on migration that would crash the economy".

He stressed the objectives of ensuring that Brexit does not impact negatively on the Good Friday Agreement and the peace process there, and protecting North-South trade and economic activity and the Common Travel Area.

Irish Taoiseach 'reassured' over Tory-DUP deal
The institutions collapsed amid a bitter row between the DUP and Sinn Féin about a botched green energy scheme . While there may be a political border between the two countries, there should be no economic border, he said.

Discussions created to guarantee DUP support for Theresa May's government have been going on for 10 days.

According to the Irish government statement, Varadkar raised the ongoing discussions on formation of a new government in London with the DUP, which is a matter for the parties represented at Westminster, but stressed the need to avoid any outcome which could interfere with devolution and the prospects of re-establishing the Executive. We are talking about a confidence and supply agreement with them.

But she added: "On reaching such an agreement we will make sure that the details of that are made public so that people can see exactly what that is based on".

Mr Coveney made his comments at Stormont on Monday evening after a day of British and Irish governmental and multi-party talks aimed at finding an agreement to reinstate the Northern Executive and Assembly by the deadline of June 29th.

Speaking in Downing Street alongside Mr Varadka, Mrs May dismissed these concerns as she claimed her government "remains absolutely steadfast" in its commitment to upholding the Good Friday Agreement.
