Video: Has this IFA presidential candidate got the X Factor?

Flor McCarthy, the IFA presidential candidate from Co. Kerry, has released a song as part of his election campaign.

The lyrics and music was compiled by Dan Sweeney from Kenmare and the video was put together by Novnik.

Here’s a snippet of some of the lyrics from the campaign song:

“It’s our time to start anew, Flor know just what to do. Strong voice for me and you. When times are tough he’ll pull us through.

“And I said hey, McCarthy, he’s the man for you and me. McCarthy, McCarthy, working for our unity and security.

“It’s your time to make a move, it’s your time to make amends, it’s your time to make the rules, so let’s begin.”

This week, the IFA Presidential debates enter their fourth week, tonight Mayo is the venue followed by Galway and Westmeath later in the week.

Farm incomes, levies and price volatility have been the main issues brought up at the debates that have been taking place across the country.

Meanwhile, there continues to be deadlock for the top job in Connacht.

No candidate has met the criteria for the position and it seems no one is willing to pull out of the race and give their county signature to another.

After two nomination processes, the region has been left with five candidates meaning no county could back another.
