The general election is just two weeks away.Election posters on Leeson Street Bridge. Image: Leah Farrell Election posters on Leeson Street Bridge. Image: Leah Farrell SEVERAL POLITICAL PARTIES have been releasing their manifestos in recent days, outlining what they would do in government ahead of the general election vote in two weeks’ time. Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil both released their manifestos yesterday and the Green Party will be launching its version this morning. People Before Profit launched its general election manifesto on Wednesday while other parties have yet to launch the final version of their manifestos. The policies in these lengthy documents outline what the party would do if elected into power. They are aimed at winning over voters, but do people actually read manifestos before deciding which party or candidate to support? So we want to know: Do you read political party manifestos before casting your vote? Poll Results: No (389) I read news articles about their policies (240) Yes (187) What's a manifesto?

Gotta a manifesto let's put it to the testo sultansofpingfc wheresmejumper I’d believe what’s in the Harry Potter books before I’d believe what’s in an election manifesto. jk_rowling for Taoiseach. No i don’t read fairytales anymore Don’t need to 🤨we all know sinnfeinireland want to do right for the country whereas most of the other parties just keep spinning the same repetitive 💩 and then turn their backs on the people who helped them to get there while giving themselves a pay rise for doing a good job🚮
Bible is probably more factual. And thats complete horse shite. Vote for some one different. See if that changes anything. Do it at least once. Can it be any worse than these clowns. Ff fg? Hardly Yes. Then I have a good laugh and wonder how they think they’ll achieve any of it. I never vote for anyone that just calls to my door a week or two before voting, so I just read fake news and cast my vote
Yes fiannafailparty did not mention VICAcampaign or position on votes for Irish Abroad Referendum? Not if they’re over 100 pages! If I wants lies I'll ask my child who ate all the oreo's Yup, but go on past performance...never again FF for me..boom and bust is their motto..plus USC was nail in coffin.
Doherty looks set to top poll in Donegal and Sinn Féin may get second seatPearse Doherty looks set to top poll in Donegal and Sinn Féin may get second seat in the constituency, according to new opinion poll ge2020 is this meant to be a surprise? I’d like to see Doherty as finance Minister. This should be a shake up election. Looks like The Irish times, the Irish independent and RTÉ all want a Grand coalition. Same old jobs for the boys. I can't see this being the case at all I think 2 seats for SF, 2 for independents (Thomas & John) and fight for the last. Definitely going to be interesting
I base my vote off experience with TD’s who’ve actually helped people. Sean Crowe, for example, got repairs done to my council house that were desperately needed but they were refusing to do &. no other TD was willing to help with Not interested in anything FG/FF have to say, it's all bs. But I 100% believe in SF's manifesto. Makes complete sense, all fully costed too.
Who do u vote for so? Tough one to work out A manifesto is best summed up by the work already done. You hire someone off experience not the promise of it. Waste of time reading a book of lies from FF FG LABOUR Yes, I look at past achievements and failures and weigh them against their plans while also checking the probability of success on those plans. If you dont, you shouldnt really vote because you dont know what your getting. Sure SF wana dissolve the special criminal court hahaha
Not of ff fg I do but also look at what they have done in the past. Don’t just accept investigate for yourself don’t listen to FB or Twitter do your own research
Blow for Peter Casey as poll has him down on 2% Fianna Fáil could win two seats in the five-seater constituency with Pat 'The Cope' Gallagher and Charlie McConalogue. 😂😂😂 He insists on keeping the beaches open
FF FG and Labour manifesto's are a waste of paper because its all lies.!! Both FG and FF are the same both liars Who has time to read that much lies No I base my vote on what they all did while in government past and present not the load of tosh they are going to do in the next five years to lure you in to get your vote, they had nine years, end of story
Why would anyone waste their time reading the manifestos of Fine Gael, Fianna Fail, Labour when we already know they're all lies? Not any more
