A hard border is inevitable if Britain leaves the customs union and politicians need to stop "sugarcoating" the truth, Ireland's main opposition leader has said. Speaking to Sky News, Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin also attacked Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson for his "unhelpful" rhetoric and for misleading the British public.Mr Martin said: "The implications for the peace process are very real, and extremely damaging for the economic and social fabric of the island of Ireland.
If Britain failed to agree a Brexit deal it would be "devastating" for the peace process in Northern Ireland, a former Irish prime minister has told Sky News. John Bruton, who helped shape the peace agreements of the 1990s, said the UK leaving the EU with a negotiated settlement would inevitably result in barriers being placed on the Irish border.Discussing a no-deal Brexit, Mr Bruton warned on All Out Politics: "The effects in Ireland would be devastating for the peace process.
A verdict is due today in the inquests into the deaths of five family members in #Buncrana. Yesterday, it heard the driver of the car was more than three times over the legal limit. I'll have latest updates @SkyNews.
@DailEireann@theresa_may Leo Varadkar also insists at this "historic moment" Ireland will stand firm on its current #Brexit position even it means isolation from rest of EU "we will hold to this line" #Brexit
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
