Feel like you’re not being listened to?
Newstalk wants to give you exclusive access to a local TD, by getting them out of Leinster House, and into yours.
We all like to complain about politicians; they don’t know how much childcare costs, they have no idea how hard it is to get a mortgage, they’re the reasons we have slow broadband... the list goes on and on.
We can help!
We've listened to your complaints and criticisms and we want to help you do something about it.
We’ve teamed up with our politicians and are giving you the chance to get exclusive access and Take Home a TD. Your local politician will spend a day following you as you go about your life, be that going through the busy morning commute, dealing with childcare, covering the price of groceries or battling a run-down GAA pitch.
If you want a local TD to join you and your family for a day — to show them life outside of Leinster House and in their constituency — fill in the form below.
We will contact respondents with a view to matching them with a TD. If selected, the process will see a politician spend a working day (approx. 9am-5pm) with you. The day will be recorded and an edited version played on air.
To take part, you must:
- be available for filming and audio recording on one Monday or one Friday, from 9am - 5pm
- be willing to have the TD accompany you into your home between 9am and 5pm
- be willing to include the TD in your daily routine.
Take A Home a TD – exclusively on Newstalk.
