What does the North’s constitutional future look like and as Sinn Fein look set to get the highest vote share, for the first time ever, will they secure the First Minister nomination?

Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern joined Anton to discuss this as well as the possible impact this weekend's elections could have on the overall political landscape of Northern Ireland as well as the further work that needs to be done if a United Ireland is to be achieved.

Newstalk's Sean Defoe was also on hand to run through the developments as they played out over the course of yesterday evening and looks ahead to what we might expect from today.
