Each week Brexit Republic will assess the unfolding developments, explain the complexities, and explore where and how Brexit will have an impact.
Aiken To Join (1965-69)
In this special episode, Deputy Foreign Editor Colm Ó Mongáin talks to the historians behind the Documents in Irish Foreign Policy series and explores some very familiar themes from the period 1965-69 as Ireland and the UK sought to join the EEC. Guests: Dr Michael Kennedy, Dr Kate O'Malley, Dr John Gibney.
A Taoiseach and a UK Prime Minister meet in the northwest England and get on famously. Sound familiar? Political Correspondent Micheál Lehane, Europe Editor Tony Connelly and Deputy Foreign Editor Colm Ó Mongáin talk pragmatism, mood music and citrus fruit.

A 'goodbye' from Liz Truss but no 'hello' to stability. As the UK's political upheaval rolls on, what effect will it have on relations with the EU? Europe Editor Tony Connelly and Deputy Foreign Editor Colm Ó Mongáin try to make sense of an unprecedented week.
The Brit Whisperers

A new British monarch, a new British Prime Minister - a new relationship with the EU? RTÉ Deputy Foreign Editor Colm Ó Mongáin & Europe Editor Tony Connelly assess the chances of miraculous occurrences.
Great, easy to listen to, straightforward dissection of Brexit. Hopefully British people will listen to it and may get an objective view of the biggest policy decision since WWII (or the NHS).
