WATCH: All female Áras Uí Chonghaile discuss partition and the future of Ireland

Partition and a United Ireland have been widely discussed recently.

During the week Claire Byrne hosted a panel discussion about the possibility about a United Ireland and it's had a lot of people talking.


In the wake of Brexit the idea of reunification has been at the forefront of many minds, with some thinking it's inevitable, while others think it will never happen.

Following on from Claire Byrne's show Áras Uí Chonghaile hosted an all female discussion on partition in Ireland and what they think the future of Ireland will be.

With 2021 marking the centenary of the partition of Ireland 'The Future of Partition - Women's Perspective' takes a look at what the next few year might have in store for both the Republic and Northern Ireland.


In the discussion that aired live on YouTube on Wednesday, a panel of female leaders with contrasting views explored its impact from their various perspectives and discussed what they see as the future for the island.

The panel which was chaired Claire Hackett, also featured opinions from Julie-Anne Corr-Johnston, Andrée Murphy, Clíodhna Nic Bhranair and Sarah Creighton.

While there were some female experts on the Claire Byrne discussion on the topic of a United Ireland (including some featured in the Áras Uí Chonghaile panel, most of the voices were mainly men.


This is a common theme with a lot of political debates so it was very interesting to watch The Future of Partition - Women's Perspective and hear what women on both sides of debate, both for and against reunification, had to say on the matter.

The Future of Partition - Women's Perspective is a long watch at over an hour but if you're interested in politics or simply the history behind partition in Ireland I would highly recommend sticking it on as it's a very interesting watch.
