I doubt if Sean Kyne will make it, with the seats going

Cuív, Éamon Ó (FF):
Farrell, Mairéad (SF):
Grealish, Noel (Ind):
Connolly, Catherine (Ind)
Naughton, Hildegarde (FG)

Not in that order, as I think Farrell and Grealish have passed out O'Cuiv.

Sad to see a racist and liar like Grealish re-elected, but he did not get an anti-refugee vote - only 1% in the Exit Poll indicated an issue with Immigration. His longer involvement in the constituency and opposition orientation swung it for him.

Two seats still to fill here, there is no doubt about which two they will be - as owed said above.
So three women, two men in Galway West.
Three conservatives, two progressives.

You can spin it any way you like, but the election results speak for themselves.
If we were going by published opinion polls and exit polls, Kyne would be elected and Grealish would rejected.
But we ain't.

Someone on RTE suggesting FF and SF may both get 37 seats. Who then would be Taoiseach?

Last Wicklow seat between Stephen Donnelly (FF) and Andrew Doyle (FG). Ex FF TD and current Independent candidate Joe Behan's transfers could decide it.

Norma Foley (FF) elected to final seat in Kerry without reaching quota.

I have plenty of friends and relatives in the constituency, and I could have told Sean Kyne he was in trouble before polling day, if he had asked me. I got the same message when I was there over the weekend.

An Independent like Grealish was an unknown quantity ... he said himself on RTE that he got little comment on refugees or immigrants on the doorsteps, it was the usual Housing and Healthcare.

Will Sean Kyne run next time or will it be Eddie Hoare? Has SK decided if he's running for the Seanad yet?

So much for the TG4 poll of SD and Greens being in the running!
There is a long history of inaccurate polling in that constituency. I'm not sure what the reason is. Maybe the sample sizes (which are normally around 500) is the reason, because the smaller the sample, the smaller the margin of error.

I think TG4 are kind when they use the word "fluent" there.
I doubt if Mary Lou could hold a serious conversation in Irish.
There's a reason TG4 didn't have a leaders' debate - they couldn't find 2 leaders with fluent Irish.
Well Micheal Martin's Irish sounded very good yesterday in Dail Eireann.
