THE British-Irish Council will host its bi-annual meeting in Co. Fermanagh, it has been revealed.

The council meets on a twice-yearly basis and discusses a range of issues, including transport links, agriculture, the environment, culture, health and education.

With the date of the meeting yet to be confirmed, the delegation will be led by the First and Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland.

With outgoing First Minister Arlene Foster threatening to vacate her position when the new DUP leader Edwin Poots announces his ministerial team this week, it is unknown who could be representing Northern Ireland as First Minister whenever the council meets.

The British-Irish Council members include the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the devolved governments of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It also includes Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man.
