Donegal looks like one of the few counties in the country which could return a no vote.
With 14,652 votes tallied, the no vote stands at 52% and the yes vote at 48%.
Those boxes relate mainly to the Inishowen peninsula, Letterkenny and Glenswilly.
The Inishowen electoral area has suggested that the peninsula will certainly return a no vote in the abortion referendum.
A number of boxes in rural Inishowen have suggested a strong no vote there.
It is slightly closer in the more urban areas such as in the heart of Buncrana and Moville where the vote is split in many places while there is a slightly stronger yes vote in some.
It is early days here in the count centre at the Aura Leisure Centre in Letterkenny.
A number of TDs including Pearse Doherty from Sinn Fein, Independent Thomas Pringle and Senator Padraig Mac Lochlainn are also observing proceedings.
Deputy Doherty has admitted that it will be a very close contest here in Donegal.
Boxes are still being opened with both the no and yes campaigns suggesting a very close contest in Donegal.
But it appears that Donegal could be again about to return a no vote.
