Non-party candidates in Swords are at 36pc.

In Mulhuddart, where left-wing candidates traditionally poll strongly, the Anti-Austerity Alliance's Ruth Coppinger is on 26pc while Sinn Fein's Paul Donnelly will probably top the poll with 30pc of the tallied votes.

Castleknock voters turned out strongly for the FF candidate Jack Chambers who was running at around 30pc in earlier tallies.

Fine Gael is also performing well in that area, with 21pc of the ballot.

The Greens are also doing well in Castleknock where tallies are putting them at 12pc.

Balbriggan is a bright spot in an otherwise dark day for Labour in Fingal. The party is running at 19pc there, with FG (13pc), FF (10pc) and SF (9pc) the best of the rest.
