The daughter of the former President of
Ireland Erskine Childers, says she’s in favour of reducing the age of a presidential
candidate. Nessa Childers, who is an Independent MEP says her father was sixty
nine  when he became president. But the Dublin MEP argues there’s no reason why
a person as young as 21 couldn’t competently carry out his or her presidential
duties. Ms Childers says she’ll be voting yes to Friday’s referendum to reduce the
age of a presidential candidate from thirty five  to twenty one .
