I live in Northern Ireland - after we leave the EU, will my UK insurance be valid if I drive over the border?

I currently live in Northern Ireland and I'm covered by GreenFlag. After we leave the EU, if I drive over the border to Eire, will I technically be in Europe? If you follow this logic, will I be covered by my UK insurance? If I need GreenFlag, can I use them in the south of Ireland?

Answered by Tim Kelly
Yes, but you will find that the contract will be amended and reworded to suit. Currently, there are negotiations ongoing in Parliament for this, and for driving licences. Technically, the EU licence will no longer be valid and, as a result, a lot of complications are going to arise.
