Pippa Hackett has had a short but very charmed political career. This time last year, she was an Offaly county councillor after getting just 584 first preference votes in the local elections.

It was a good day for the Greens and Hackett sneaking in on the seventh count in a rural constituency was one of the more notable results of the day.
