Independents Henry Gaynor and Michael Pixie O’Gorman want the abolition of water charges and have connections to anti-austerity movements.

Mr O’Gorman disagrees that support from this voting bloc will be fragmented given the number of candidates running on these platforms.

Mr Gaynor agrees and says it’s a healthy sign that so many people are engaged in the political system.
