On her first visit to the Border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, the new party leader said it was still possible to stop the UK leaving the European Union.
She travelled to a part of the Border between Co Armagh and Co Louth to meet community representatives and young people living in the area.
“I felt it was important to come and listen to people and community groups about their experiences and about what the prospect of a hard border means to the communities,” Ms Swinson said.
“It’s very powerful hearing from those individuals who live and work in this area. The Liberal Democrats have been very clear in our position – we think that Brexit is bad. There is no good Brexit for the UK and that includes Northern Ireland.
“We have been fighting for there to be no border here where I am standing and the way in which that has operated successfully for years now has been as members of the European Union and we are still members of the EU and it is still possible to stop Brexit.”
