The recount was called by Jane Dillion Byrne of Labour after she missed out on the final seat in the 15th count.

She challenged the vote as there was a just a difference of around 20 votes between her and Mary Fayne of Fine Gael.

John Bailey, Fine Gael, and Cormac Devlin, Fianna Fail have been deemed elected but not formally declared.

A returning officer said the count will resume in two to three days. There is reportedly a lack of staff to count votes for the ward.
