Cork City: Fianna Fail is again largest party
Published 25/05/2014 | 14:00
FF were poised to win 10 seats on the 31 seat council - almost doubling its 2009 electoral total of six seats.
FG dropped from eight seats to a predicted total of five.
SF enjoyed their best electoral result in Cork since 1918 by winning a predicted eight seats, four more than five years ago.
Other major gains were made by Independents/Anti-Austerity Alliance/Workers Party candidates who were set to elect eight candidates, up two from 2009.
It was a miserable 36 hours for Labour who lost all seven of their council seats including that of outgoing Lord Mayor Cllr Catherine Clancy.
It is the first time in over half a century that Cork will not have an elected Labour councillor.
