Irish Reunification under EU rule ?

Irish Reunification under EU rule ?
I was quite taken aback recently by a discussion by members of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on the Good Friday agreement . 

They were discussing a report entitled - "the EU and Irish unity - planning and preparing for constitutional change in Ireland" 

The report was commissioned by the European Left / Nordic Green Left (a political group in the European Parliament) and was researched by Mark bassett , a lecturer in EU law at Queens University and Colin Harvey , professor of European Human rights law , board member of 'irelands future' and member of the Gender Identity Panel (Northern Ireland) and Equality and Diversity Forum Research Network.school of law queens university belfast . 

The premise of their report was that a reunification referendum in Northern Ireland would offer the EU the opportunity to regain control over Northern Ireland through reunification of Ireland under EU law .  

 The Good Friday Agreement (GFA) contemplates Irish reunification following referendums in both jurisdictions on the island.
 

Due to the likely withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU), this outcome offers a path back to the benefits of full membership for the population of N. Ireland .
 

The debate on Irish unity will have an added dimension following Brexit. It becomes a way for the region to return to the EU
 

It is time for the EU institutions to take the next step and embrace responsible planning and preparation for a process of constitutional change in Ireland
  

Attending the meeting through video link were senior Sinn Fein members like Michelle Gildernew ,  Paul Maskey  and Senator Niall O Donnghaile . 

What struck a chord with me was the willingness of the sinn fein members to go along with this idea of reunifying North and South under EU rule . 

There was no question of the lifelong struggles and sacrifices made by so many good people for the cause of Irish Freedom , the right to self determination , the right of an Irish Parliament to make its own laws and decide its own affairs , the vision of the 1916 proclamation to be 'sovereign and indefeasible' , or the vision of our founding fathers at the very first Dail sitting in the declaration of Independence speech - "we ordain that the elected Representatives of the Irish people alone have power to make laws binding on the people of Ireland, and that the Irish Parliament is the only Parliament to which that people will give its allegiance" . 
  

No , There was nothing like this , only the idea that swapping one Imperial regime for another , Westminster for Brussels and reunifying everyone under EU rule is what it was all about and Irish Independence will have been achieved.

what benefits exactly are they talking about ? ignoring democratic referendum results like nice and lisbon , allowing free movement of dangerous criminals and terrorists . allowing society to be so overburdened with mass numbers of people that thousands become homeless , cant earn decent living , turn to drugs , suicide etc . what benefits exactly of eu rule are they talking about

If these people in labour like communism so much why dont they go live in North Korea ?? why do they want to bring north korea to Ireland . the first thing to go in a communist regime is your ability to change your government , the next is your right to disagree with them , the next is your standard of living , everyone ends up in poverty while their government get rich
