Among the issues being highlighted today are jobs, political reform and the proposed abolition of the Health Service Executive.

Fine Gael has long been critical of the HSE and this afternoon in Dublin it will be outlining its plans for the abolition of the executive.

The party is keen to stress that the body is the brainchild of Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin, who is a former Minister for Health.

Meanwhile, Mr Martin will be at the Farmers’ Market in Blackrock in Co Cork, highlighting Fianna Fáil’s plans for creating jobs in the agri-food sector.

Jobs will also be on the Labour agenda today as one of the key planks of the party’s plan to deal with unemployment is its proposed Strategic Investment Bank.

The party will give the details at a news conference in Dublin this morning.

Sinn Féin President and candidate for Louth Gerry Adams is formally launching his party’s election campaign at the National Gallery in Dublin.

There will be 41 Sinn Féin candidates at the gallery for the launch.

Green Party leader John Gormley will this afternoon join colleagues at the publication of plans to reform political party funding.
