Fianna Fail’s Ciaran Brogan is set to top the poll in Letterkenny.
The well-known businessman is out in front with almost all the boxes in the Letterkenny area opened and tallied at this stage.
He is followed by Donal Coyle, Jimmy Kavanagh and Michael McBride who should also take seats on the council.
The real surprise in this area is Sinn Fein’s Gerry McMonagle who could be in a dogfight for one of the last two seats.
The former Mayor fo Donegal was expected to take one of the first three seats.
He could well end up in a fight with his fellow Sinn Fein man Aidy Glackin for a seat.
Kevin Bradley has done really well and could also take a seat as could Bernie Moran and Manus Kelly.
Other candidates including Cathal McGlynn, Mary T Sweeney and Finn O’Donnell are out of the running at this stage.
