Sinn Fein's candidate in the upcoming Irish Presidential race, Martin McGuinness walks outside the Customs House in Dublin, Ireland, after handing in his nomination papers Tuesday Sept. 20, 2011. McGuinness pledged to campaign on his "record as a peacemaker" and insisted that his past as a commander within the Irish Republican Army (IRA) fighting British rule in Northern Ireland for about thirty years, should not prevent him becoming Irish president, when he runs for election in October 2011.
