Slowly Fine Gael party has increased its commentary on Irish unity.
This week the party's TD Neale Richmond spoke in favour of reunification at a Cambridge University event.
On the Your Politics podcast he acknowledged his comments had gone further than the Fine Gael leadership to date.
His remarks come on the same week as a poll conducted for the BBC indicated 37% felt Northern Ireland would still be part of the UK in 25 years with 51% believing it would not.
Deputy Richmond joined presenter Paul Cunningham and guests Mícheál Lehane and Sorcha Ní Riada.
