Kildare electoral area: latest updates
The overall trend in Kildare, if tallies are to be believed, is in favour of newcomers, particularly of the Sinn Fein variety.
Swings and roundabouts for FG and Lab. FF not unduly troubling anyone, except in Naas where newcomer James Lawless is running away with the poll on 16%.
Sinn Fein's Sorcha O'Neill, another newcomer, is second on 13%.
