The Candidate podcast brings TheJournal.ie readers closer to the party leaders, giving you a chance to find out more about what they stand for before we go to the polls this Saturday.

Sinn Féin shouldn’t get so “offended” by his critiques, he said, stating that such debate about party reform is “not the end of the world”. Equally, he criticised Fianna Fáil for ignoring the party membership decision at the Ard Fheis when it came to abortion, saying politics should be led by the grassroots.

Murphy said she believed this election was a defining moment for Ireland, with the electorate showing a growing frustration with the ‘type’ of economic growth being experienced here. She said her party would push for a better work-life balance for Irish people, particularly young families facing long commutes and struggling to pay childcare costs.
