Johnny Fallon: Gallagher ambush ensures race will go down to the wire

AT last we have reached the end of the presidential debates. Last night's Frontline programme was a suitable ending for them too. This was a strange debate.

In presentation it was like going back to a bygone era. Pat Kenny told us that each candidate had party supporters in the audience and then, in marked contrast to Ryan Tubridy’s approach on the late late show debate, we were treated to the tedious applause of hacks for every candidate when their chosen person managed to get a quick quip in.

But whatever about the presentation the content was fairly substantial. This will be remembered as the debate where every candidate managed to undermine their own position.
