FINE GAEL are in trouble in the Taoiseach's hometown - with his brother Henry Kenny struggling to hold on to the final seat in the Castlebar eight seater constituency.

Tallies for the Castlebar electoral area predict Fianna Fail will take three seats with Independents taking two and Fine Gael on two. Sinn Fein is predicted to take one seat in the constituency.

Henry Kenny is neck and neck with party colleague Eugene Lavin with both on 7pc of the vote for the final seat.

The tallies have placed Independent Michael Kilcoyne as a clear winner with almost 19pc of the vote.
