THE COMPETITION IS hotting up as the Election 2011 candidates head into the home straight.

They are employing every electioneering trick in the book, especially the time-honoured baby-kissing photo opp.

Click on each of the candidate names – Aengus O Snodaigh, Michéal Martin, Eamon Gilmore and Enda Kenny – to see how they have worked with children. Then tell us – if you were those children’s parent, which politician would get your vote?

Poll Results:

Enda Kenny, Fine Gael (235)
Michéal Martin, Fianna Fail (113)
Aengus O Snodaigh, Sinn Fein (75)
Eamon Gilmore, Labour (74)

All pics courtesy Press Association images, except for Eamon Gilmore photo which is by Stephen Kilkenny.
