A Derry born businessman who indicated last year he would contest the General Election in Donegal has now said he will pursue a Seanad seat instead.

Peter Casey, who is based in Atlanta, but regularly visits the North West is in discussion with Independent TD Shane Ross with a view to securing a nomination for the industrial panel.

Last year, the businessman who owns a home in Inishowen, told the Irish Times he would contest the upcoming General Election in Donegal as an Independent candidate.

However, he later said he would not be running for the Dail.
