Shane O'Brien - Sinn Fein This week on WTSpod we've gone political. General Election 2016 is just days away and it could be one of the most important elections in Irish history. So, to help you make a decision we approached all the major party candidates in the Dun Laoghaire constituency to ask (amongst other things) 1. Why should people vote for you? and 2. Why should people vote for your party? In part one of our election special we spoke to Sinn Fein's Shane O'Brien who is bidding to become the first ever Sinn Fein TD for the Dun Laogaire Constituency.In part two we spoke to Fianna Fáil's Cormac Devlin who has been a councillor in Dun Laoghaire for over 10 years and is hoping to be elected to Dáil Eireann at first time of asking. In part three we spoke to Renua Ireland's Frank Cronin. A Cork native that has been living in Dublin since the late 80's, Frank Cronin is a business man who has been CEO of such organisations as Newstalk Radio and The Sunday Tribune. It is the first time Frank is standing for any kind of political office. Danny & Mero give their breakdown of the Dun Laoghaire constituency and provide the historical context for how voting tends to swing in the borough. Polling day for Election 2016 is February 26th, get out there and make a difference.
