ALL of the seven councillors have now been elected to the Athenry-Oranmore electoral area with three candidates being elected on the final tenth count.

It has been third time lucky for Turloughmore’s David Collins who has taken a seat for Fine Gael while former County Mayor Liam Carroll, who seemed to be in trouble during the early tallies, has regained his seat for Fine Gael.

Newcomer for Fianna Fail Shelly Herterich Quinn from Athenry has also been elected. She and Carroll were elected without reaching the quota after Ind candidate Josette Farrell from Claregalway failed to gain enough transfers to stay in the race.

They now join Fianna Fail’s Albert Dolan from Monivea, Ind James Charity in Corrandulla and Ind Gabe Cronnelly from Athenry and Ind Jim Cuddy from Carnmore to complete the seven seater.
