The manager of the Kerry Travellers Health and Community Development Project has condemned comments by Peter Casey.

The presidential candidate said Travellers shouldn’t be recognised as an ethnic minority, while speaking to the Independent’s Floating Voter podcast.

Kerry County Council was one of four local authorities that endorsed Peter Casey, allowing him to run for the presidency.


Brigid Quilligan says she would like to hear an apology from him, as the comments were very concerning.
