Peter Casey explains why he thinks he got so many votes in the Presidential Election

“No, absolutely not,” Casey said. “The biggest comment by far is the fact that I pointed out that middle Ireland, the people that get up every morning and go to work are feeling tired.

“They’re feeling tired. They’re feeling that nobody is listening to him. They can see there’s no way to get on the housing ladder, they’re frustrated and it’s getting worse.”
