Poll: We have five official candidates - who gets your vote so far?

It’s a five horse race right now.

AS THINGS STAND, we have five official candidates who will contest the race for the Áras later this year. 

It’s important to note that there may be a few more names on the ballot paper come polling day as a number of other would-be candidates attempt to get the support of local authorities.

So, this morning we want to know: Who gets your vote right now? 

Poll Results:

Michael D Higgins (11746)
Liadh Ní Riada  (2354)
Sean Gallagher (2345)
Joan Freeman (1233)
Gavin Duffy (744)
