His vote of 9,539 was not enough to get him elected on the first count with a quota of 10,712 in the constituency.

And independent Noel Grealish, formerly of the PDs, also looked set to hold his seat after polling 7,187, an increase of several hundred from five years ago.

Fine Gael’s Sean Kyne also increased his vote from 4,550 to 6,136 and was set to retain his seat.
