Sixth count Athenry-Oranmore: Cronnelly closes in on seat

Gabe Cronnelly

The sixth count in the Athenry-Oranmore area has been completed – and as expected the elimination of Sinn Fein’s Louis O’Hara saw a healthy transfer to former Sinn Fein councillor and now Independent Gabe Cronnolly.

That has put him within shouting distance of the quota so he should get across the line after the next count.

Following the sixth count, the elimination of the Greens’ Kenneth Keavey has taken place and his 679 votes are now being distributed.

Although based in Corrandulla, he received votes right across the electoral area so it is very difficult to establish who will benefit most from his transfers.
