Health Housing And Education the Focus As Election Campaigning Continues

Wicklow’s Simon Harris will be defending his work over the past few years, as opposition parties target him, and his party colleagues Eoghan Murphy and Joe McHugh, with Health, Housing and Education on the agenda for day three of the general election campaign.

According to the Irish Times, Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and Sinn Fein are all canvassing in the capital today.
It comes after an opinion poll over the weekend had Fianna Fáil 12 points clear of Fine Gael - and Sinn Fein just a point behind them.

Elsewhere, Labour and the Social Democrats continue their hunt for votes, while Aontú launches its first general election campaign.
