Independent senator David Norris has formally launched his bid to become president of Ireland.
Mr Norris said he would be a “deeply serious” president if elected to the position.
Asked if Ireland was ready for an openly gay president, Mr Norris said: “I don’t see myself as a gay president, I see myself as a president who happens to be gay.”
He added: “I think the Irish people are a little bit bored with my sexuality”. He said the Irish people knew him and his values and knew he had lived a decent and good life.
