Donegal: Difficult day for Fine Gael in the Glenties

It was a difficult day for Fine Gael in the Glenties Electoral Area in Donegal with John Curran’s early elimination, former Fine Gael, Padraig Doherty eliminated in the sixth round and the former chairperson of the Glenties Electoral Area struggling for a seat as the evening progressed.

Deputy Dinny McGinley said that the day was one when Fine Gael fielded blows in every corner of the country.

“Certainly, it's a very different election. We've taken a hit in nearly every part of the country and here as well. The people have delivered a very strong message that will have to be considered very carefully in the coming days by the government."
