All six seats have now been filled in the Donegal Municipal Electoral area after a marathon count.
With 19 candidates in the field, this was always going to be a long one.
Independent Niamh Kennedy led the way and topped the poll but it took 11 long counts to elect her with 2,322 votes.
Close behind was Noel Jordan from Sinn Fein with 2,087 votes with Fine Gael’s Barry Sweeny grabbing the third seat with 2,087 votes.
The remaining three seats were filled by hotelier Michael Naughton (FF), veteran politician Tom Conaghan (IND) and Sinn Fein’s Michael McMahon.
There was disappointment for Fine Gael’s John McNulty who just lost out on a seat.
