Eire will leave the EU at some point (as will everyone else) but they wont be the next domino to fall. That will probably be in the East.
I have just read an article - in The Mail as it happens - which throws a slightly different light on the matter.
It claims that the agreement which was almost reached yesterday was actually for Norn Irn and the Republic to be aligned only to the degree which is already set out in the Belfast agreement.
Dublin then got mischievous and couldn't help but try to turn it into a power grab over Norn Irn. So they leaked to all and sundry that both parts of Ireland would become aligned with each other in a much deeper way.
Had they got away with it, it would have been a great victory from their point f view, but of course Arlene was never going to roll over and let that happen.
This version makes more sense to me than having to accept that May and those around her arent just incompetent, but utterly retarded and more naïve than a new born baby.
It might all come out in the wash - eventually.

Yes, just wait until one of the ministers involved is ‘reshuffled’.

Being British means a lot to people in Norn Irn. They paid for it with a lot of blood in the recent past and aren't going to see it eroded by spineless fackwits in Westminster or Brussels.

She really is the stereotypical, hard-faced Irish matriarch. I wouldn’t argue with her.  ;D

I can't see an answer; all I can see is us getting bent over without the grace of some KY to ease the pain.

You seem to know far more than is good for you about 'taking it up the wrong un' Aaaron. :-X ;)

Don't forget that once everyone in Ireland is happy we've got Gibraltar to sort out. ;D That must be next week's job in the never ending fustercluck that is BREXIT. ::)

We are crawling inexorably towards a no deal. That of course is what both sides saw as the conclusion right from the start. At the eleventh hour there will be hurried talks to try and put something in place regarding rights of EU/UK nationals plus a few other issues which no one has talked about yet.

Then there will be the EXbrexit where it is all turned on its head and bingo Britain will be back in the EU it never really left but forever subservient and on worse terms than before. The remainers will be overjoyed, Brexiteers will be overjoyed at not having to pay the never disclosed divorce bill and most importantly the EU will have its cash cow injecting money into the Eu to spend on Eastern Europe.
Result alround. Give it another forty years and the current youth will realise and then they will vote leave ........ I see a pattern emerging ;D

PS will we have a Dunkirk style evacuation to repatriate us expats caught in the cold in the event of a no deal? Hercules, Mustangs, Dakotas - anything that can fly even those in museums. People like Kevin W will be pressed into flying. One in three families will be forced to find a spare room for us. The Social Services will buckle under the cost and manpower requirements to administer us all.

Oh OK.

But a lot have already left for the Uk purely down to the poorer exchange rate and the writing was on the wall. A lot were neither here nor there types living a life hoping that if they fell ill someone would treat them for free. In the event of a no deal and no reciprocal healhcare agreements a lot more will have to leave as the monthly cost woud be prohibitive. That is a real problem for a lot of expats in Europe including Spain.

I'm not quite sure what the definition of 'leaving the EU' is. :-\

Maybe we'll have a 'Leave Lite' brexit. One where we leave (sort of) but pay for access to the single market as well as giving 50 billion to the EU.

'Leave Lite' will probably mean we are still under the jurisdiction of the ECJ and have some notional control over movement of people but no absolute power to stop 'dark foreign johnnies' coming to the UK.

It's a total clusterf*ck. :-\
