The success of the Greens in the European and local elections has been a key theme in Elections 2019.

"It is looking as though we will have a green voice in Brussels for Ireland for the first time this century," said Ciarán Cuffe of the Green Party.

"We have been eclipsed by the green wave," said Labour party leader Brendan Howlin.

"I don’t think you can fully understand the green surge without fully understanding there’s been a movement on the streets," said People Before Profit TD Richard Boyd Barrett.
