The DUP leader Arlene Foster has made headlines up North after she spoke with Patrick Kielty in a documentary he’s making called “My Dad, the Peace Deal and Me”.
Kielty is well known to have lost his father, Jack during the troubles when he was murdered by loyalist paramilitaries in January 1988.
The comedian spoke about how three men were convicted in connection with his father’s murder, but were later freed after the Good Friday Agreement was signed in 1998.
The DUP leader and Kielty have this in common however, as Arlene’s father was RUC-employed was shot during the troubles but didn’t die from his injuries.
According to IrishNews, Kielty asked Foster: “If the majority did want to join the Republic of Ireland how would it feel to be a unionist, outside of the UK?”
She replied: “First of all I don’t think it’s going to happen. If it were to happen, I’m not sure that I would be able to continue to live here, I would feel so strongly about it.”
“I would probably have to move.” – she said.
Asked where she’d move to, Foster replied with:
“Well that’s the question. It’s not going to happen so I don’t have to worry about it anytime soon.”
