The Europe Desk: New episode out January 14 on Ireland and transatlantic relations
Irish Minister for European Affairs, Helen McEntee, joined us to discuss Brexit, Ireland-U.S. relations and the future of the Good Friday Agreement. This interview was recorded at the "Bridging the Atlantic" conference, hosted by the BMW Center for German and European Studies, the Georgetown Global Irish Studies Initiative, and the Clinton Institute at University College Dublin, on December 5 2019 at Georgetown University.

Thanks to Timofey and Ben for their replies to my original post. Both contributions raise important issues in respect of Brexit, the UK and nationalism. They also perhaps more indirectly reflect of the future of the nation and nationalism within Britain and Europe.
Thanks Brian, this is indeed very helpful to set the scores between the "nations" of the Islands. I have argued in the past (a short outline here https://www.psa.ac.uk/psa/news/brexit-ethnopolitical-dimension) that it is in fact the failure to resolve the "English" rather than the "Celtic" question which creates problems for the future.
I think you are absolutely right to underscore the importance of nationalism to Brexit. Brexit is indeed reconfiguring political loyalties in the UK.
As you say, the nation, rather than the state, is becoming the focus of loyalties, although this is blurred in the case of England. The 'British' rhetoric of Brexit has obscured this development.
