Though all Kerry TDs will be invited, going on previous ‘People’s Debate’s’ it’s likely the full complement of TDs will not be there to field questions on the night, as the Fine Gael party has refused to take part in the debates, thus ruling out Brendan Griffin and Minister Jimmy Deenihan from attending.

The show has been on the road for a while and has finally found its way to Kerry, having recently been in Cork, Donegal and Dublin.

The debates are very popular with interest groups, members of charitable organisations and protest groups. It’s also a place where individuals who feel their voice is not being heard can highlight what they feel is an important issue.

Topics recently have ranged from, water charges, same-sex marriage, disability issues and housing. It will be up to the audience on the night to set the agenda for what questions will be asked.

If you want to attend, TV3 are advising people to arrive at the Gleneagle Hotel on Monday April 13 at 7pm for the debate which is due to begin 8pm.

The show will be aired the following Wednesday on TV3 between 10pm and 12pm.
