Elections 2019: Adjudication of doubtful Ballymahon ballot papers now underway
Fine Gael's Paraic Brady is closing in on retaining his seat in the Granard Municipal District following this afternoon's second count.
No candidate has reached the required 1099 quota needed to join Turlough 'Pott' McGovern and Micheal Carrigy, with the latter's 84 surplus votes now being redistributed.
Cllr Brady currently stands at 881, around 200 votes shy of the required number needed to claim the area's third seat.
