Boxer Moran awaits some good news in Kenagh

20.33

The recount will involve a full re-examination of all papers. It is expected that the recount should be complete before midnight. The count will then resume from that point.

20.28

Here are the results of the 12th count in Kenagh. The figures were announced just before returning officeer Imelda Branigan announced the full recount. 

Moran +864 = 10,108

Burke +182 = 7,633

Hogan +533 = 6,643

Penrose + 319 = 6,360

Bannon +519 = 5,955

Gerety-Quinn +1,153 = 5,917

20.15

A full recount of all the votes has been requested by Connie Gerety-Quinn. A recount will begin at 9pm

19.53

Strange goings-on in Kenagh. There's talk that FF are requesting a full recount. We are awaiting confirmation

18.55

With six candidates left fighting it out for three seats in Longford-Westmeath, word on the street in Kenagh is that there may be a shake-up in the leader board with this next count. Based on Morgan's transfers which are now being distributed, we hear Bannon may be set to pass Gerety-Quinn out. If Longford is to have a TD, who will it be?

18.31

The race is hotting up in Kenagh, where we are around an hour off the results of the 12th count. Boxer is 1,812 votes off the quota. It's looking more likely that our last two TDs may be elected without reaching the quota. A lot depends on where the transfers go in this next count. Stay tuned!

17.33

We have the results from the 11th count:

Moran +758 = 9,244

Burke +1160= 7,451

Hogan +71 = 6,110

Penrose + 399 = 6,041

Bannon +451 = 5,436

Gerety-Quinn +61 = 4,764

Morgan +24 = 4,339

Non transferable votes: 101

James Morgan has been excluded. His 4,339 votes will now be redistibuted. 

16.10

Sitting TD Gabrielle McFadden (FG ) is officially out of the race for a seat in Longford-Westmeath. She has been excluded on the tenth count with a final total of 3,025 votes, which will now be redistributed.

Boxer needs 2,570 votes to reach the quota, so in theory he could get in this round. But it's more likely it will take another count

16.05

Moran +145 = 8,486

Mae Sexton is excluded and her 1,895 votes will now be redistributed. 

14.09

Boxer is now on 8,134 votes - still 2,922 off the quota. The next couple of counts will give a clearer picture. Will he get enough transfers from fellow Athlone native McFadden and Independent Alliance running mate Morgan to bring him over the line?

13.58

The results are in from the eighth count for Longford-Westmeath:

Moran +174 = 8,134

Burke +174 = 6,074

Hogan +151 = 5,784

Penrose +146 = 5,185

Bannon +8 = 4,711

Gerety Quinn +31 = 4,297

13.09

Seventh count results for Longford-Westmeath:

Moran +122 = 7,960

Burke +113 = 5,900

Hogan +26 = 5,633

Penrose +24 = 5,039

Bannon +31 = 4,703

Gerety Quinn +71 = 4,266

Morgan +49 = 3,492

12.28

It is not getting any easier to predict who will take the remaining three seats in Longford-Westmeath. Boxer is looking good, and some believe FG are in with a chance of earning two seats for Peter Burke and James Bannon. However SF's Paul Hogan and FF's Connie Gerety-Quinn cannot be ruled out yet. It's all still to play for! 

12.21

The results of the sixth count are now in.

Moran +105 = 7,838

11.25

With Deputy Troy elected yesterday, Boxer is next in the running for a seat with 7,714 votes. But the quota is 11,056 so he has a long way to go yet. We suspect it might be another long day.

11.05
