How likely is Ireland's political establishment to make moves to bring about unification following the Brexit vote and probable Scottish withdrawal?

Highly unlikely. The ones who really want re-unification are the Rep.of Ireland and Irish Americans who don't get the situation

Don't insult the Irish, don't you remember how many died due to the British caused potato famine!

Depends on the economic situation in NI. If there is an auster government in Westminster and the economy begins to falter, Sinn Fein will try to capitalise. They have a well respected minister in Mairtin O'Muillieor who can appeal past the problems of their IRA roots. Even the SDLP might be forced to be a nationalist party in more than words.

Really the situation in NI depends on Scotland and the border areas. If the customs posts are moved to UK ports and Scotland leaves the future for NI looks bleak. Economically our corporation tax cannot compete with the Rep. and Osborne has lowered the UK's to 12.5%, which was Stormont's plan initially.

This whole scenario depends on a sympathetic British government otherwise the Secretary of State can veto referendums on reunification. If Corbyn was elected there would be a chance, but Irish reunification at the moment relies on too many variables to be bet on now. The wheels are in motion because of Brexit but its destination is undecided.

Ireland should precipitate a political action to speed up unification
Any government that doesn't is committing treason against it's political interests and the rights of it's citizens in Ulster
