Leader ratings: How did you rate the party leaders in tonight's Prime Time debate?

Miriam O’Callaghan and David McCullagh hosted the RTÉ debate this evening.

IT WAS ONE of the most anticipated debates of the campaign, with the last-minute inclusion of Mary Lou McDonald generating significant conversation ahead of this evening. 

We expected it to be a more measured show after last week’s rowdy debate between all the parties, with Leo Varadkar and Micheál Martin facing off with the Sinn Féin leader on Prime Time on RTÉ One. 

But what did you make of the three politicians’ performances? How did David McCullagh and Miriam O’Callaghan do in hosting duties? Have your say (and find out what others thought too) below…
