Independent presidential candidate Peter Casey has announced that he will be suspending his campaign for the weekend due to the reaction he has received to his recent comments about Travellers.

In a statement released earlier today he said: "I do not want the people of Ireland to elect me as President of Ireland just based on one statement I made."

His statement also read: "I know that my world experience and global views will make me a uniquely suitable candidate for President of Ireland".
