Final week campaigning for Irish General Election 2016

Feb 25, 2016, 04:34 PM

With only days remaining before Ireland heads to the voting booth in the General Election on Friday February 26th, we have a look at the highlights (or perhaps more aptly put - the lowlights)of the last full week of campaigning.

We talk about the latest opinion polls, protests, a Taoiseach putting both of his feet in it, campaign posters for the Minister with responsibility for Forestry being nailed to trees and two independent candidates releasing what can only be described as "odd" election campaign songs.
