Race is on for the final seats in Cavan/Monaghan

The race is on for the final seats in the Cavan/Monaghan constituency.

Currently the 10th count is underway with Brendan Smith, Niamh Smyth, and TP O’Reilly all still in contention.

Robbie Gallagher of Fianna Fail is also still in the race however, there are predictions he could be out out of the running following the distribution of Sarah O’Reilly’s votes.

Brendan Smith is currently on 8,112 votes, Niamh Smyth has 6,806, and TP O’Reilly is on 7,197.

However, the only remaining Fine Gael candidate isn’t holding out much hope he’ll make it across the line, telling Northern Sound News that it hasn’t been an easy election for the party throughout the country.
