Independent candidate Marian Harkin has been re-elected to the European Parliament after taking the last seat in the Midlands-North West constituency.
She was elected following a re-check of the ballot papers that lasted 18 hours, beating Fianna Fáil's Pat "the Cope" Gallagher for the fourth seat.
She joins fellow Independent Luke Ming Flanagan, Fine Gael's Mairead McGuinness and Sinn Féin's Matt Carthy as the Midlands-North-West representatives in the new European Parliament.
