McConalogue to top the poll - final tally figures in now

McConalogue to top the poll - final tally figures in now

These are the final tally figures for Donegal.

In brief they show a massive performance by Charlie McConalogu of Fianna Fail, with 12,422; Pearse Doherty (SF), Pat the Cope Gallagher (FF), Joe McHugh (FG), Thomas Pringle (Indp), Padraigh MacLochlainn (SF), Gary Doherty (SF), Dessie Shiels (Indp) are the top seven performers behind McConalogue.

These figures ask more questions than they answer: Is Joe McHugh safe to hold a Fine Gael seat: Fianna Fail, are they certain now to take two seats? Is Padraig MacLOchlain of Sinn Fein safe for a second seat for that party and will Thomas Pringle hold his seat?

From one to 16, this is how it looks in Donegal based on these tally figures, there are of course only five seats on offer:
