The Northside speaks - Live election debates

Voters will have an opportunity to question the candidates in the Dublin North Central and Dublin North-East constituencies in Election debates.

The debates will take place on Thursday 10 February for Dublin North-East at Trinity Sports and Leisure Club, Donaghmede and on Tuesday 15 February at Northside Civic Centre, Coolock for Dublin North-Central. Both meetings run from 7.00pm to 9.00pm.

These events are organised by community radio station near90fm and will be broadcast by them live.

Near90fm’s Alan Braddish, who will be chairing the debate for the Dublin North-East constituency says: “these debates will give an opportunity for local people to address those issues that are important to them and their communities, issues like unemployment, health, social welfare and education… Our aim is to give the community the chance to inform themselves of the candidates’ policies before polling day.”
