Since the last election in 2019, the electoral map has changed, as has much else in Irish and European politics. How will those changes impact the election?

There are a plethora of independent and small party candidates, but do the circumstances favour those put forward by the big parties this time around?

The panel pick over the candidates, constituencies, EU political dynamics, and more.
