The Candidate brings readers closer to the presidential hopefuls, thanks to six in-depth interviews.

WHO WOULD WANT to be President of Ireland?

And why?

Those are two of the questions we put to the six presidential contenders during in-depth interviews for our new podcast series, The Candidate.

Today, we bring you our fourth The Candidate interview.

The podcast brings readers closer to the presidential hopefuls, offering you a chance to find out more about the nominees before we go to the polls on 26 October. 

For our fourth The Candidate podcast, our News Editor Sinéad O’Carroll talks to Sean Gallagher – one of three Dragons’ Den stars who are in the presidential race this year.

We talked to the businessman about Peter Casey’s comments about Travellers, how he’ll deal with the possibility of losing the election, and what impact being born with congenital cataracts has had on his life.
