Pádraig O Ceidigh wants the medical records of all candidates released in the race for Aras an Uachtarain.

A common practice for presidential hopefuls in the United States, the Independent Senator says Ireland should be no different.

Speaking exclusively to the Sunday Independent this weekend, Mr O Ceidigh says he will release his own health records if nominated and believes other hopefuls should do the same.
