MAYO is no closer to electing a council.

After counting votes for the Ballina constituency throughout the night, a full recount was ordered at 8.30am this morning - just after the 13th count was announced.

Meanwhile the Castlebar recount will not take place until 6pm this evening. Once it is completed it will be followed by the Ballina area count. However, Returning Officer, John Condon, said the count tonight would not go on beyond midnight and will resume if necessary on Tuesday morning.
