A full recount for the Ballina area is going ahead today in the TF Royal Theatre Castlebar following a request from SF candidate John Sheahan.

After an all night count in the Ballina area the final two seats were filled by Smyth (FF ) and Cruise (FG ) at around 7.30 am.

The margin between Cruise (FG ) and the next candidate Sheahan (SF ) narrowed to 11 votes at one stage in the final counts (count 10 ).
