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.

The Candidate 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 second The Candidate podcast, our News Editor Sinéad O’Carroll talks to Liadh Ní Riada. 

We talked to the MEP about her thoughts on the HPV vaccine and cancer, the impact of Brexit on Ireland, and the Irish language.
