An alliance of eight groups representing older people has called on the next government to deliver the long overdue National Positive Ageing Strategy.

The Older & Bolder Alliance has set out five priorities for parties and candidates to address if they are to win older people's votes.

They include Fairer Health Care, Secure Pensions, Improved Local Transport, Greater Involvement for older citizens and delivery of the ageing strategy.

Older & Bolder Director Patricia Conboy said the issues are not only critical for older people but also for people of all ages in Ireland.
