A CHURCH of Ireland minister whose congregations are in both Donegal and Derry says he hopes Brexit doesn’t put up new barriers between communities.
Archdeacon Robert Miller as three parishes in Derry and one in Muff even declared: “When I’m in Muff we pray for the President, and when I’m in Culmore we pray for the Queen.”
He told the Irish Times that Brexit is causing uncertainty but he is confident Border communities can deal with it.
“Each generation will have its own challenge, and in some ways our challenge is Brexit.”
“In terms of peacebuilding, you’re always aware that a change in the status quo at the minute could be a difficult thing,” he told the paper.
“For people who have lived on the Border for 40-plus years of troubles, that would be a concern if there was an attempt to reimpose it, but it does seem that it will be a soft Border.”
