DONEGAL LEA  - Niamh Kennedy is the first elected in Donegal town

Niamh Kennedy has been elected in the Donegal LEA

Niamh Kennedy has been elected on the eleventh count in Donegal town and passed the quota of 2,043 with a total vote of 2,322 after the transfer of votes from John Boyle.

After almost 14 hours the first candidate has been elected and a second should follow very shortly.

Boyle transfers of 160 have pushed Noel Jordan (SF) to within just ten votes of crossing the quota as the 12th count gets underway.

John McNulty picked up 179 transfers from his Fine Gael running mate to boost his chances for the final seat.

Kennedy’s surplus of 270 votes is now being distributed.
