The election of both Frank McBrearty and Liam Doherty on the 8th count has kept the status quo in the Lifford/Stranorlar electoral area.
Doherty and McBrearty join poll-topper Martin Harley, Patrick McGowan, Gary Doherty and Gerry Crawford in this six-seater.
It’s the first electoral area to finish voting in Co Donegal today.
The voting means that the party break-down in the Finn Valley area will be two Sinn Fein seats, two Fianna Fail seats and two Fine Gael seats.
Newcomer Garvan Connolly looked like he could have taken a seat for Fine Gael up until the 8th count.
He polled 1,041 votes behind Liam Doherty on 1,195.Tags:
