Here's what the parties are doing on day 13 of Election 2016

All eyes will be on the University of Limerick tonight where the second television debate of the General Election will take place.

A number of policy documents will be published by the parties on day 13 of Election 2016.

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin will canvass this morning in Tralee before moving to Limerick.

His party will also publish a policy document on mortgages.

Meanwhile, Labour will launch its manifesto at 11am in Dublin, where Enda Kenny and Leo Varadkar will also unveil Fine Gael's health strategy.

Sinn Féin is set to launch a billboard campaign criticising Labour promises made in 2011.

Elsewhere, the Social Democrats will publish their policy on community banking.

Seven party leaders - including Richard Boyd Barrett as representative for the Anti Austerity Alliance/People Before Profit and Social Democrats joint-leader Stephen Donnelly - will then participate in tonight's leaders' debate, which will be broadcast on RTÉ television from 9.35pm.
