Fresh faces in the Seanad / The new Government
The election of a diverse group of Senators and the absence of any majority group bodes well for a colourful term in the Upper House - but how long will it last for? How should we reform the widely-criticised panel voting system? And should long-term planning be a priority for both houses regardless of their life span? To discuss, Hugh is joined by Irish Times columnist Noel Whelan and two newly elected Senator, Independent Alice Mary Higgins and Fianna Fáil's Catherine Ardagh.
Inside Politics is hosted by Hugh Linehan and produced by Declan Conlon.
