Dooley elected on the seventh count

Finally the first candidate has been elected as Timmy Dooley exceeded the quota on the seventh count.

The results of the count were,

Dooley (FF) +1,378   12,150

Harty (Ind) +328  10,688

Breen (FG) +92 7,512

Carey (FG) + 138  7,032

McDonagh (FF) +441  5,497

Moran (SF) +101  5058

Norton (Ind) +170  3,152

 

Timmy Dooley exceeded the quota by 749. That amount of votes are being distributed as his supporters celebrate. Only one vote separates the two Michaels, McDonagh and McNamara. Neither of them look like winning a seat though.
