By Jane Suiter

On Friday October 4th voters will have decided whether or not to abolish Seanad Éireann. Voters Parties and Elections are delighted to invite you to an open debate on the campaign and result. It has been a colourful campaign with allegations of populism and power grabbing levelled at the government by political parties and campaign groups on the No side. The Yes side have focused on the cost of the Upper House and have tapped into public hostility towards politicians and the political system. However, the campaign has been dominated by elites and seems to have largely passed the public by. Concerns about apathy and a possible low turnout are moving to the fore in the closing days of the campaign.

Come along to hear from all sides on Thursday 10 October 5.30pm

  • The debate will be chaired by Dr Jane Suiter (DCU)

Our expert panel includes:

Campaign Participants
Regina Doherty, TD (Leading the Fine Gael campaign for the abolition of the Seanad)

Prof Gary Murphy, DCU (Chair- Democracy Matters)

Prof Michael Marsh (TCD

Prof David Farrell (UCD)

Dr Theresa Reidy (UCC)

Date: 10th October
Time: 5:30 – 7:30pm
