Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the short term some are worried about getting a deal through, and the DUP votes may still have a bearing on that. In the longer term they may also worry about their €10 Billion p.a. subvention to the N. Ireland economy, especial if UK economy and tax revenues crater. Some, believe it or not, still have an emotional attachment to the idea of the UK, although few will have actually spent much time in N.I.  

But the hard reality is that the vast majority only think of N.I. when it causes them problems, as during the Troubles, or doing the backstop negotiations now. Polls of Tory Party members have shown they care about Brexit much more than about the Union, or even the future of the Conservative Party, and the only thing they care about more than Brexit is the prospect of Corbyn coming to power. Go figure...
