TEMPLEMORE man Donal O'Regan has declared this week that he will fight the upcoming general election as an independent candidate in North Tipperary. And, Mr. O'Regan is confident that an appetite for change will see the well-known Tipperary archaeologist win a seat in the next Dáil.
Speaking to the Tipperary Star this week Donal O'Regan confirmed that he would contest the North Tipperary constituency.
"I would like to announce that I am officially declaring myself as a candidate for the next Dil," Donal O'Regan said.
"I will be running on an independent ticket, but there is a possibility that I may be forming a new political party in the near future."
The forthcoming general election will see Mr. O'Regan contesting the constituency against seasoned campaigners like Fine Gael's Noel Coonan, Independent Michael Lowry, Fianna Fil's Mire Hoctor and Labour's Alan Kelly, but the Templemore man believes that he can run a successful campaign.
"I would describe myself as a reflective, proactive and alternative candidate," Mr. O'Regan told the Tipperary Star.
