Labour, on the other hand, suffered losses, though its candidate Ken Farrell in Balbriggan bucked the trend by topping the poll.

Cian O’Callaghan, a former Labour councillor, came out in front in Howth/Malahide as an Independent.

Fine Gael will consider one councillor from four candidates in Balbriggan a poor return, particularly considering it’s Health Minister James Reilly’s constituency.

Annette Hughes of the Anti-Austerity Alliance (AAA) and Sinn Fein’s Edmond Lukusa were among the eye-catching results.

In Transport Minister Leo Varadkar’s electoral area Castleknock/Balbriggan, his party colleagues Ted Leddy and Eithne Loftus won seats.
