Over the past fortnight on air we’ve been airing a short segment twice a day on KCLR Live and again on The Way It Is dubbed The Candidate.
Ahead of last year’s bye-election, each of the candidates running for a seat were presented with a mix of formal and informal questions that drill a little deeper into their personalities as well as addressing some election issues.
With the 2016 General Election looming and polling day this Friday, we’ve set each of the fifteen candidates ten questions with a mix of our own presenters putting them to those seeking a seat in the 32nd Dáil.
From books they’ve read to who sings in the shower, first dates to more pressing issues, you can listen back to all installments of The Candidate below.
- Bobby Aylward
- Pat Deering
- David Fitzgerald
- Kathleen Funchion
- Keith Gilligan
- Conor MacLiam
- Paddy Manning
- John McGuinness
- Patrick McKee
- Jennifer Murnane O’Connor
- Malcolm Noonan
- Ann Phelan
- John Paul Phelan
- Adrienne Wallace
- Noel G. Walsh
