2024 will see local and European. elections and - possibly - a general election all taking place.

And these looming political battles are already shaping what political parties do this year.

UCC’s Theresa Reidy joins Hugh, Pat and Jack to get ahead of the curve and discuss next year’s elections.

  • How important are next year’s local elections in setting the scene for what’s to come after?
  • Will the “vote left transfer left” pact be repeated?
  • How do the government parties compete with one another while fighting a surging Sinn Fein?
  • Will the general election be called early? And will Micheal Martin still be Fianna Fail party leader heading into it?
