Here is a break down of the stats from Dublin Mid-West tallies, which takes in areas such as Clondalkin, Lucan, Palmerstown, Newcastle and Rathcoole.
Some interesting points to highlight are the 58.47% turnout.
After leading a joint-campaign, Sinn Féin’s Eoin Ó Broin and Mark Ward are very transfer friendly and are expected to see both deemed elected if tallies are anything to go by.
A four-seater, tallies would suggest a dogfight for the final two seats with Fianna Fáil’s John Curran expected to duke it out with Fine Gael duo Emer Higgins and Vicki Casserly and Solidarity-People Before Profit’s Gino Kenny.
Independent South Dublin County Council councillor Francis Timmons will be disappointed with the initial tallies but will be transfer friendly with other left candidates.
