No big change after second count in Athenry-Oranmore

THE second count in the Athenry-Oranmore electoral area has been announced which was the distribution of Ind James Charity surplus.

The Corrandulla candidate was elected on the first count in the early hours of this morning along with Fine Gael’s Albert Dolan from Monivea. Both exceeded the quota of 1,565 with Charityt achieving 1,792 first preferences and Dolan an impressive 1,720.

It’s a remarkable victory for such a young candidate, who is just 20 years of age.

The distribution of Charity’s surplus hasn’t resulted in any other candidates being elected.

The count proceeds with the distribution of Albert Dolan’s surplus of 155 votes.

Carnmore’s Independent Jim Cuddy is moving closer to reaching the quota as is Ind Gabe Cronnelly in Athenry and both candidates will retain their seats.
