The Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, says the Irish Government will hold

:00:08.:00:10.

a referendum to allow Irish citizens living outside the state -

:00:11.:00:15.

including in Northern Ireland - the right to vote in Irish

:00:16.:00:17.

In a speech in Philadelphia, he said the decision,

:00:18.:00:23.

taken at a cabinet meeting last week, was a clear recognition

:00:24.:00:25.

of the importance that Ireland attached to her citizens

:00:26.:00:28.

The move was recommended by a Constitutional Convention in 2013.

:00:29.:00:38.

A man's been charged with manslaughter in connection

:00:39.:00:40.

with the death of a man in Lurgan last Thursday.

:00:41.:00:43.

29-year-old Paul Gerard Curran was found dead inside

:00:44.:00:46.

Another man and a woman who were arrested have been released.

:00:47.:00:51.

The Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, David Davis,

:00:52.:00:54.

has promised that ensuring a frictionless Irish border is one

:00:55.:00:57.

of his top priorities in reaching a deal with the European Union.

:00:58.:01:02.

It's thought that Prime Minister Theresa May could trigger Article 50

:01:03.:01:05.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show on BBC One, David Davies said

:01:06.:01:11.

the Government was working to maintain an invisible border.

:01:12.:01:17.

We have talked to the Irish government about it.

:01:18.:01:19.

The first foreign trip I made was to Dublin.

:01:20.:01:21.

Indeed Michel Barnier had a part in the peace process.

:01:22.:01:34.

They are determined in their mind that this will not go wrong.

:01:35.:01:38.

That's the combination of determination that exists here.

:01:39.:01:43.

However, the Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams insists there will be

:01:44.:01:46.

a hard border without action by the Government.

:01:47.:01:48.

He said his party would continue to push for special status

:01:49.:01:50.

With Brexit we are going to see a hard economic border,

:01:51.:01:55.

the frontier between the European state and British state

:01:56.:01:59.

is going to be on the end of Ireland and that is why we have argued

:02:00.:02:03.

for a special designated status for the north that doesn't impinge

:02:04.:02:07.

upon the constitutional position but does guarantee we will not

:02:08.:02:10.

have the type of misery that's going to be inflicted

:02:11.:02:13.

on our farming, on our dairy farmers, on our agri-food industry

:02:14.:02:16.

Arlene Foster says she has never thought about resigning

:02:17.:02:23.

as DUP leader following the Assembly election.

:02:24.:02:24.

Since the election, Mrs Foster has declined to be

:02:25.:02:27.

interviewed by the BBC, and speaking to Sky News

:02:28.:02:30.

she insisted the result had not been disastrous for her party.

:02:31.:02:34.

She acknowledged it had been a wake up call for unionism but said that

:02:35.:02:37.

Sinn Fein can not dictate who the DUP should nominate

:02:38.:02:40.

into the territory where we are telling each other who to select,

:02:41.:02:58.

we want to of course say to Sinn Fein we think

:02:59.:03:01.

you should select X, Y and Z instead of A,

:03:02.:03:03.

They can't tell us who to select as our nominees and likewise

:03:04.:03:11.

The Secretary of State, James Brokenshire, has cancelled

:03:12.:03:15.

a trip to Washington for St Patrick's Day

:03:16.:03:17.

in order to concentrate on the talks at Stormont.

:03:18.:03:19.

Mr Brokenshire was due to fly out on Wednesday

:03:20.:03:21.

But there are now just two weeks to a deadline to get agreement

:03:22.:03:26.

A barman is in a serious condition in hospital after he was assaulted

:03:27.:03:32.

The man, who was working in the Royal Oak bar

:03:33.:03:36.

in Green Street, suffered serious head injuries after he was attacked

:03:37.:03:39.

by a number of people just after half past nine.

:03:40.:03:46.

Three men aged 36, 52 and 50 have been arrested.

:03:47.:03:49.

Police are appealing for information.

:03:50.:04:02.

Must have been shocking and my thoughts are with the individual who

:04:03.:04:05.

was assaulted because police described it as Britain and there

:04:06.:04:10.

were serious head injuries and it is very telling from a member of staff

:04:11.:04:11.

and the family. Sport, and Jonathan Rea remains
