The land around the small Irish town of Carrickcarnan is the kind of place where Britain's plan to leave the European Union runs right into a wall an invisible one that's proving inordinately difficult to overcome. Somehow, a border of sorts will have to be drawn between Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, and EU member Ireland to allow customs control over goods, produce and livestock once the U.K. has fully left the bloc.That means the unpoliced and invisible Irish land border will become the boundary between the EU and the U.K. raising questions about trade and customs checks.Northern Ireland's Catholic and Protestant communities remain divided decades after 30 years of conflict claimed around 3,700 lives.It helped dismantle Northern Ireland's once heavily-policed and militarized border with Ireland and the last thing people want now is a new one.The Northern Ireland-Ireland border zig-zags all over the map.Above all, the Brexit Irish border plan must respect the identities of Northern Ireland's people and not inflame tensions, as many fear it might.
