Mistakes & Momentum / Advocates for Change

As polls stubbornly refuse to show the predicted swing back to coalition parties, Mary Minihan and Michael O'Regan join Hugh to discuss the campaign so far, including Fine Gael's monotone message, Micheál Martin's traditional canvass and difficult battlegrounds for Soc Dem's 14 candidates.

Representatives of advocacy groups for the elderly and mental health issues tell Hugh how they are getting their message on to candidates' agendas and into party manifestos during the campaign.

On the panel are Peter Kavanagh of Active Retirement Ireland and Dr. Shari McDaid of Mental Health Reform.
