As the Dail breaks for its 10 week summer holiday, the Floating Voter podcast looked back on the highs and lows of the political year so far.

Labour's Housing Spokesperson, Jan O’Sullivan, also joined INM's Kevin Doyle, Nicola Anderson and Cormac McQuinn as they discussed the government's plan to solve the housing crisis whilst the Limerick TD also derided the 'do-nothing Dail.

“I’d give Enda Kenny 5/10 for efforts so far in this Dail term,” said O’Sullivan. “It has been a do-nothing Dail where Fianna Fail have gotten all of the power with none of the responsibility.”

As for the Floating Voter highlights and lowlights, Enda Knny’a air-guitar at the Bruce Springsteeen concert in Croke Park, ‘the fiscal space’, and the new political landscape arising from GE16 were all favourites/pet-hates for the Floating Voter team.
