Parties to focus on wages and health as campaign enters day seven

Political parties are expected to focus on workers' payments and health policies on the General Election campaign today.

After a somewhat flat start to the election campaign, crime, health and the economy have emerged as the dominant themes in the past few days.

This morning Sinn Féin will be the first of the major parties to launch their full election manifesto.

Labour will launch their living wage policy, which aims to bring the minimum wage to €11.30 an hour.

Enda Kenny's campaign trail will take the Taoiseach to Wexford and Wicklow, as the party outlines its working family payment.

Fianna Fáil's Micheál Martin starts the day in Killarney before heading to Cork, as the party focuses on health priorities.
