Mr Coveney's latest intervention came as MPs in Westminster warned it appeared impossible to reconcile the Government's decision to pull out of the single market and the customs union with its declared intention to maintain a 'frictionless' border.

The Brexit Committee said the Government's proposals for dealing with the issue, including using technology to create a 'light touch' border, were 'untested and to some extent speculative'.

He said: 'We can't move to phase two without at least a more credible understanding of how we are going to solve the issues.'We believe our asks here are fair and they are deeply held views.'We want to work with the British Government to find a sensible wording that can allow us all to move on to phase two sooner rather than later.

'Everybody recognises that there are three big issues... 'We want to be positive in terms of how we approach that but we will also be insisting on there being no fudge here so we get some real, something credible that allows us to reassure the Irish people around the border issue.' Britain has insisted it is impossible to finalise how the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic will work before UK-EU trade talks.

But he said if the draft divorce deal Britain presents on Monday is 'unacceptable for Ireland it will be unacceptable for the EU' and warned: 'The UK's future lies - in some ways - in Dublin.'Mr Varadkar said 'good progress' was being made but demanded more 'credible' assurances from London over how it proposed to make the UK-Ireland border work.

The Taoiseach said 'the next couple of days will be crucial' but said 'with the right political will we can reach agreement'.“I can’t pay you a cent more,” Boris tells Sophie, who’s trying to sell him a car. “You’ll just have to match my price,” she tells him.Around the corner, Ethan and Vickie are haggling over the price of car.Ireland suggests this could mean leaving Northern Ireland inside the customs union with checks at Belfast and other ports.'That is why we are insisting in phase one of these negotiations we get more credible answers on how we are going to manage the border.'We have grown used to a border that is largely invisible...The highest reading of the year so far was one of 18C (64F) in Norfolk on March 18.
