RTÉ's Prime Time is hosting a three-way leaders' debate tonight featuring outgoing Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, Fianna Fáil leader Micheal Martin and Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald.

The national broadcaster yesterday revised its decision to exclude Ms McDonald from the debate following a surge of support for Sinn Féin in recent polls.

The debate will be hosted by Miriam O'Callaghan and David McCullagh.

As the leaders battle it out with four days to go until polling day, our experts at Independent.ie will be fact-checking their claims live.
