i added seat numbers to constituencies and parties
Butler looking safe. Deary not so good ...Deary's vote last time was 12.5% in first preferences but that was dundalk south. this time carlingford (i think butler became the cllr when he became a senator and then he became a town councillor when 2011 election happened and so i think that is why they are in the opposite parts now.)
Hopefullyardee - tomas wilkinson ff transfers went 43% to his party colleagues. 8 candidates left for 5 seats. independent candidates votes to be distributed. 127 votes separate bottom 5
tommy byrne elected dundalk. 6 seats left, 7 candidates - 3 fg, independent, labour, ff. last eliminated from anti austerity alliance. 1 fg, 1 lab and 1 ff very tight. 33 votes separating them.
dundalk carlingford - 4 left, 3 seats. mcgahon fg 1,386 votes. deary 1,262 votes. keelan ff 1,154 and quigley sf 1,152 votes. and i think what we are awaiting on is the distribution of the 2 votes of loughran sf. if all go to quigley, we have a tie.
Did Fergus O’Dowd's brother lose out to the Jr Ministers son? (a late addition to the party ticket)Drogheda wrapped up.
SF 3, FG 3, Ind 1, FF 1 and Labour 2. As commented earlier very good vote management by SF to get three as Flood only got about 0.4 of a quota. Big losers Michael O'Dowd and Frank Maher.
Nope both went out. They both polled poorly to start with and didn't have a hope. Hard to say if the vote split or if Michael was getting dumped anyway. 1st preferences for the O'Dowd name was about 6%, which would probably have put one of them in with a shout.Did Fergus O’Dowd's brother lose out to the Jr Ministers son?
