Housing, immigration, Gaza: Which issues are Irish voters really paying attention to?

In the News podcast examines the results of the latest Snapshot poll

Listen | 25:27

Snapshot, an Irish Times poll with Ipsos B&A, captures the issues that citizens are taking notice of.

Every month, 1,000 people, over the age of 15 and from all around the country are asked an open-ended question on what they’ve noticed about the Government’s actions – and given space to add their own comments.

The results, tracked since last July, are published every month in The Irish Times. In each poll, the list of top-of-mind subjects changes but two consistently top the list – housing and immigration.

During the period of April’s poll, well-reported events included the arrival of a new Taoiseach, the ramping up of the attack on Gaza and the roll-out of the bottle recycling scheme. But what did people notice and how happy are they with the Government’s response.

Jennifer Bray from the Irish Times political team explains what it all means.

Presented by Bernice Harrison. Produced by Suzanne Brennan.
