The race to be the next leader of the Green Party begins today.

Candidates are expected to declare their intention to succeed Eamon Ryan.

As the dust settles on Eamon Ryan's surprise resignation as Green Party leader, attention now turns to who will try and succeed him.

Could Roderic O'Gorman be in with a chance? - the Integration Minister would be the most senior Minister in the running after Catherine Martin said she wouldn't be in the race.

Or what about Minister Pippa Hackett - the Greens have never had a leader from outside Dublin so she could prove a fresh face.

Junior Ministers Ossian Smyth and Joe O'Brien are other potential nominees.

Or could it be a surprise face from within the Green Party as any member can run as long as they have the support of 50 others.
