For many the highlight of the Des Bishop’s Election Special on RTÉ 2, a couple of months back was the Rubberbandits segment on mental health

During the show, a segment aired from The Rubberbandits’ Blindboy Boatclub about mental health issues being addressed in the run up to Friday’s elections. The video has since appeared on The Rubberbandits’ Facebook page and has seen a rise in popularity for Blindboy Boatclub who raised issue with candidates Enda Kenny, Gerry Adams, and Michael Martin who have not clearly advocated for a robust mental health plan in their manifestos or devoted more time to addressing the issue.
