Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Northern Irish loyalists end support for peace deal over Brexit” – below is their description.
People in Northern Ireland who want to remain part of the UK said the deal has driven a wedge between them and the rest of the country.
Feelings are running high – loyalist groups have said they no longer support the 1998 peace treaty, which ended decades of conflict.
According to one leading opponent, anger at the Brexit deal could spill over into protests and possible violence.

In This Story: Ireland
Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.
A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
