In two of the four electoral areas, independents topped the poll with former TD, James Breen topping the poll in Ennis and independent councillor, Christy Curtin topping the poll for a 5th successive election in west Clare.
New faces include co-founder of the Clare Crusaders Clinic, Ann Norton who looks poised to grab a seat in Ennis and Fine Gael’s Mary Howard in the same electoral area.c
