Cavan results: Update
Results are coming in thick and fast in Cavan in respect of two constituencies here- Cavan-Belturbet and Ballyjamesduff- where most of the elected candidates have been finalised.
In Cavan Belturbet, four candidates were elected on the fifth count after FG’s Barry Wilson was eliminated and his votes distributed. Madeleine Argue FG, Damien Brady SF, John Paul Feeley FF and Peter McVitty FG have all been elected, with it all to play for realistically between Sean Smith (1116), Patricia Walsh (823) and SF’s Eugene Greenan, just over 100 votes splitting the latter two with surpluses now being distributed.
in the Ballyjamesduff area Winston Bennett FG, Philip Brady FF, Noel Connell SF, Paddy O’Reilly FG and Paddy Smith FG have been elected, with the final seat either going to Shane P O’Reilly FF or fellow party member and first time candidate Craig Lovett.
Results from the third constituency are slow to come, where things are very tight and just one person elected so far in FF’s Niamh Smyth
