Poll: Who would get your vote as next President of Ireland?
Up to ten names have now been mentioned in connection with the presidency. We want to know which of these ten – some who’ve already declared an interest and a few who’ve shown none at all – would be mostly likely to get your vote at this stage.

THE RACE for the Áras is well and truly underway, after Mary Davis yesterday became the latest candidate to announce her desire to be Ireland’s next President. She joins a growing line-up of candidates who’ve expressed an interest – and even a few who’ve shown none at all – in replacing Mary McAleese in the top job.

We want to know which of these possible candidates – some of whom, we should point out, have declared no interest so far – would be most likely to get your backing at this stage.

Have your say.
