3) Pensions

Sinn Féin says it will restore the eligibility age for the State pension to 65 - a measure which will cost €368m a year.

It also plans to increase the pension rate by €20 over the term of government, which will cost an additional €700m.

The party says it will improve suckler and ewe payments for farmers, while also offering new tax reliefs for the sector.
