Asylum seeker Ellie Kisyombe has been a prominent figure in the media since announcing her intention to run as a Social Democrats candidate in the forthcoming local elections in Dublin.

She was recently interviewed on The Last Word about her campaign, which you can listen back to here.

A front page story in The Sunday Times has now reported that there were discrepancies found in accounts she gave about her background in interviews.

Mark Tighe, journalist with The Sunday Times, and Shane O'Curry, director of the European Network Against Racism, joined us to discuss this story.
