Independent presidential candidate Peter Casey has said he is going to take the weekend to consider if he will continue in the race for the Áras.

In a statement, Mr Casey said in light of the events of the past few days, he is taking the weekend off from the campaign to think carefully about whether to continue in the race.

Peter Casey says he wants to be of service and make a real difference

Casey stated; “I do not want the people of Ireland to elect me as President of Ireland just based on one statement I made.”

All this comes in light of his comments of the Travelling Community.
