DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland’s foreign minister said he was disappointed at Britain’s parliament voting down a Brexit deal on Monday.

“The predictions were consistent enough over the last few days that this would be a heavy defeat,” Simon Coveney told the BBC.

“We now need to be patient and calm to allow this process in Westminster to take its course.”
