Odds are they end up joining Spain and Northern Ireland end up joining Ireland.
Both of them voted to remain in the EU and when leaving end up costing those places dearly it's not hard to see most of the people living there wanting to move the border to rejoin automatically.

In the case of Northern Ireland Britain has already signed on to them being allowed to join the republic if a majority of their population so wishes - that's part of the Good Friday agreement.

I'm not to sure Spain actually splinters. There have been regional tensions in Spain for centuries - it's hard to see what is so very different this time around.
But I'll guess we'll just have to wait and see.
