Peter Casey has confirmed that he is running in the general election in the Taoiseach's constituency in Dublin.

The former presidential candidate is also running for a seat in Donegal.

Mr. Casey has lodged his papers for the Dublin West constituency this morning ahead of the deadline at midday.

In a statement, Peter Casey says that he is committed to Donegal despite running in Dublin.

He says 'My heart is in Donegal and I’m committed to delivering for our county in Dáil Éireann. I live in Donegal, I employ people in Donegal, I vote in Donegal and would be honoured to represent the people of Donegal. I will take a business approach in order to get things done in Donegal.'

'Yes, I’m seriously considering putting my name on the ballot paper in Dublin West, but only to give people a chance to register an obvious protest vote against the worst Taoiseach in living memory. I’ll certainly be placing ads in local Dublin press stating the reasons people shouldn’t vote for him.'

Joan Burton is also running in the Dublin West constituency and says that Casey' has every right to run but that his message of division and hate is not welcome there.
