With the European elections just around the corner, The Journal’s politics podcast, The Candidate, returns for a new season as part of the EU 2024 Explained series to examine each of Ireland’s constituencies in the European parliament.

Presented by Political Editor Christina Finn, our first episode heads to Ireland South, and we’re joined by an expert panel to look at the main issues in the area and gauge who the serious candidates are.

It features Damien Tiernan, presenter of Déise Today on WLR FM and former RTÉ south-east correspondent; Theresa Reidy, political scientist and lecturer at University College Cork; Muiris O’Cearbhaill, reporter with The Journal currently focusing on the EU and Rónán Duffy, Assistant News Editor with The Journal.
