Kathryn Hayes

A THIRD Anti Austerity Alliance candidate has been elected in Limerick while Sinn Fein has won its fourth seat on the new local authority.

Some 25 seats have now been filled on the 40 seat council but counting has yet to commence in the six seat Adare-Rathkeale electoral area.

AAA candidate John Loftus was elected in the Limerick City West electoral area while Sinn Fein's Malachy McCreesh was also elected in the same count.

A full recount is continuing in the Limerick City East electoral area while only one candidate has been elected in the six seat Newcastlewest area.
