As 2017 begins, the Deputy Chair of the European Movement in Northern Ireland (EMNI), Ciarán Hanna, gives his personal thoughts on the eventful year that was, and what is possibly ahead for the EMNI in 2017.

The important point made during the #Brexit Referendum though was that there would never be such developments (European Army, Turkish membership etc) because the UK had a veto. Now, of course that veto will go. @BBCTalkback @williamcrawley
