First Election TV Debate Fails To Deliver Killer Blow

The Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil leaders took part in their first television debate of the general election campaign last night, with many commentators giving the Taoiseach a slight edge.

They clashed on housing and health, with heated exchanges on Fianna Fáil's promise of an SSIA style savings scheme for first time buyers.

The Fine Gael leader said he would be open to a coalition government with Fianna Fáil after the election - but Micheál Martin didn't reciprocate and accused Leo Varadkar of Hypocrisy by describing Fianna Fail as wreckless in the last few weeks.
