    Disenchantment Among Young Voters
  • Extended description

    A vox pop for 'Evening Extra' catches the mood of young voters who are mainly concerned with unemployment and emigration. Reporter Shay Healy talks to young people in St Stephen's Green park and on Grafton Street in Dublin city centre.

    The general concensus is that the young voters are disillusioned with politics and politicians who appear unable or unwilling to solve Ireland's problems.
