Eoghan Harris questions the validity of canvassing for votes door to door during elections in Ireland.

In a report from the series 'Agenda'  Eoghan Harris, author and journalist, questions the validity of election canvassing in the modern age when politics is centralised.

Speaking in both Irish and English, he argues that canvassing is hypocritical. The report features black and white archive footage of canvassing from previous elections.

The report ends with Pat and Martina, Fianna Fáil activists canvassing a sheep farmer in the Corr na Mona area of Galway.

The report is subtitled in English.
