10th Count City Central: Hoare elected

Elected: Eddie Hoare (FG)

Former Galway senior footballer Eddie Hoare has been elected to Galway City Council.

He finished with 1,188 votes and exceeded quota on the tenth count in City Central.

He had a surplus of 45 votes, which will now be redistributed in Count 11.

Frank Fahy (FG) and Colette Connolly will be returned to the Council.

Martina O’Connor (Green) is 42 votes ahead of Social Democrat, Sharon Nolan, and is highly unlikely to be caught.

O’Connor, Connolly and Fahy will be deemed to be elected without reaching the quota.
