THE SEVEN PRESIDENTIAL candidates travelled to Connemara yesterday for TG4′s debate.

The debate opened with each candidate presenting a personal statement in Irish, which ranged from supporting jobs to fighting injustice, before facing questions on 1916 commemorations, the national anthem, and the role of the Irish language in their presidency.

The candidates also faced more personal questions about their campaigns so far and what they would particularly focus on if elected.

Who do you think came out on top in last night’s debate?
