The days of only knocking on doors, making house calls and putting posters up during elections to swing votes are long gone. Social media has changed the game.

With one week to go until the local and European elections, I spotted two videos doing the rounds on Facebook for two local election candidates.

First up was Longford native, Sinn Féin candidate and farmer Mark Maguire. He sang a cover of Shut Up and Dance, changing the lyrics to Come Out and Vote.

No election is complete without a Healy-Rae in some shape or form. The son of farmer and TD Michael Healy-Rae, Jackie Healy-Rae, is running in the local elections Kerry.

If you know of any other farming-related election videos, be sure to send them in to me.
