In Today FM Matt Cooper talks to Dr Jennifer Kavanagh, lecturer at Waterford Institute of Technology and author of Electoral Law in Ireland. Dr Kavanagh gives her opinion about following the example of other European countries where election posters are restricted in a way that every party gets a space to put their poster on.
