Watch British People’s Terrible Attempts To Draw Ireland’s Border With Northern Ireland


Brexit negotiations are kicking off next month, and Ireland’s border with Northern Ireland is obviously a huge issue.

The vast majority of them failed miserably, with one woman drawing the border halfway down the island.

Donegal was lumped in with Northern Ireland in all of the drawings except one.

Another woman added that she thought the Irish people were “just making trouble because they lost”.
