Tinder Election

Firstly one candidate running in the upcoming general election is taking his campaign online - to Tinder.

Green Party candidate for Tipperary, Rob O'Donnell, has set up a Tinder profile in his hope of getting votes.

In a tweet, the 23-year-old said: "Canvassing in rural Ireland just got a bit more interesting..."

The student organiser from Pallasgreen also says he wants "a real plan for rural regeneration", and a health system that guarantees the same quality service to all patients.

He also wants to make "proper support" for young people and parents part of his campaign, adding that "our towns, in particular, have been devastated by suicide."

Parties have been launching their campaigns since Wednesday on the first full day of campaigning.

Fianna Fáil heard from residents in Drogheda about their concerns over crime.

While Fine Gael was met with criticism over the housing crisis in Longford. 

Voters will go to the polls on Saturday the 8th of February to decide who will form the next government.
