The first television debate of the general election takes place tonight between the leaders of Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil.
Sinn Féin has slammed the decision to not let Mary Lou McDonald take part in the debate.
It's been billed as the head-to-head between the men who would be Taoiseach.
Leo Varadkar and Micheál Martin will debate each other tonight on Virgin Media One with Pat Kenny moderating.
It's the first time since Enda Kenny vs Bertie Ahern that two leaders have debated in this format during an election campaign.
But it has caused controversy, Sinn Féin's Mary Lou McDonald says it's a sham that she is being excluded as the leader of the third largest party.
Micheál Martin argued that only Fine Gael or Fianna Fáil will be in a position to lead the next government because of the number of candidates running.
While Leo Varadkar said he was happy to debate with McDonald, but also wants the one-on-one format.
Sinn Féin had been getting legal advice on the situation yesterday but as of this morning, it looks as though the debate is going ahead as planned.
