Episode 22 features analysis on the election of Mary Lou McDonald as the new leader of Sinn Féin. I provide opinions and commentary on how she can lead the party moving forward and rebrand Sinn Féin under her leadership.

I address the series of bullying allegations levelled against Sinn Féin and how the party dealt with former MP Barry McElduff being accused of mocking the victims of the Kingsmill massacre.

I take a look at the Eighth Amendment referendum scheduled to take place this year.

I dissect the upcoming Irish presidential election as the current Irish President Michael D. Higgins is now in the final year of his term in office. I also take a look at the potential candidates.

Plus, I evaluate the current state of Irish politics including how Fine Gael and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar have dealt with some of the biggest issues facing the country such as the Brexit negotiations.
