Big #VINB tonight which is extended until 12.30 tonight

A show of two parts tonight, extended to 12.30 tonight. First up, the new Pope Francis (now, now, now - don‘t spell it Frances). Every news channel has been carrying this story, so my efforts won‘t be much compared to those, so I‘ll leave it at that:

Fr Peter McVerry, PMV Trust https://twitter.com/PMVTrust
Fr Joe McDonald, Johnstown Parish Ballyfermot
Fr Pat Rogers, Kildare & Leighlin Diocese Advent – Fr. Pat Rogers CP | KandLe
Alison O‘Connor, Journalist https://twitter.com/alisonoconn


Then there will be a discussion on the Meath By-Election with the main candidates. The links have the in-depth stories, suffice to say at this stage that there are 11 candidates which was caused by the death of Shane McEntee (FG):

Pretty sure Helen McEntee has never been on national TV, before. Could make or break her.
