GLENAMADDY’S Peter Keaveney is polling well according to the tallies for the Ballinasloe area with just over half of the boxes open and sorted.

This is a new area for Keaveney who previously won his seat in the Tuam area however, boundary changes resulted in Glenamaddy and Williamstown along with other areas being moved into the six-seater Ballinasloe area.

Independent Declan Geraghty from Williamstown, backed by Deputy Fitzmaurice, is also polling well in the north of the constituency.

Towards the more urban centres of Ballinasloe Independent Aisling Dolan seems to have taken pundits by surprise by taking over 800 first preference votes in her key areas.

Moylough’s Michael Connolly (FF) has just under nine per cent of the vote but boxes in his core area of Mountbellew Moylough and surrounding areas haven’t been tallied yet.

Ind Tim Broderick who topped the poll in 2014 is on track to retain his seat as is Sinn Fein’s Dermot Connolly.

Fine Gael’s Aidan Donohoe will be eager to see the boxes in his stomping ground towards New Inn be opened to get a clearer indication of where he stands.
