Ireland Midlands North-West update: first count expected at 3pm
The first count for Ireland Midlands North-West is expected at 3pm.
Luke 'Ming' Flanagan is expected to top the poll.
Sitting MEP Marian Harkin, who is also an Independent candidate, said a lot of her vote was "hoovered" up by the Dail Deputy.
“I will be expecting they will have it around 3pm. We’ll at least know whether I’m in a good, indifferent, or bad position. We won’t know until we see the figures. “
“Obviously a lot of the vote was hovered up by Ming but we’ll see what’s left.”
