On Midwest Radio, today marks the start of two  weeks of live election debates on our extended lunchtime news.

From today until the end of next week, we will have a  number of election candidates live in studio each afternoon between 1.15 and 2pm to discuss the issues of importance in their constituencies.

We will focus on the 4-seater Mayo constituency, as well as the neighbouring constituencies of Roscommon-Galway, Galway East, Galway West and Sligo-Leitrim.

On our first live debate this lunchtime, our News Editor Teresa O'Malley will interview five of the 15 candidates seeking election in Mayo - Minister Michael Ring,  FF TD Dara Calleary, Green Party candidate Saoirse McHugh, Kamul Uddin of Labour, and Daithí O'Follamhain of the Irish Freedom Party.
