THE WINDS of change have blown across the country in the 2020 General Election.
Donegal TD Charlie McConalogue topped the pole in 2016 with 12,533 votes.
Following the election of Sinn Féin duo Pearse Doherty and Pádraig Mac Lochlainn, Fianna Fáil TD McConalogue is next in line as the surplus is distributed.
“I’m in a reasonable position,” McConalogue told Donegal Daily.
“I hope with the transfer process that it will be enough to be returned to the Dáil.”
McConalogue’s vote fell by 4,186 from four years ago, with the Inishowen votes in his favour cut by around 3,000.
He said: “It doesn’t particularly surprise me given the pressure that was on.
“I had the wind with me last time around and topped the pole. I had a tighter breeze against the other way this time.”
