Eighth count Ballinasloe LEA: Three new faces as count reaches conclusion

Declan Tierney

Published

on

Independent environment candidate Aisling Dolan picked up one of the last three seats in the Ballinasloe LEA as the count reached its conclusion.

That came after Glenamaddy’s Peter Keaveney was elected having exceeded the quota – and as independent Declan Geraghty from Williamstown also secured his seat.

Earlier Tim Broderick (Ind), Michael Connolly (FF) and Dermot Connolly (SF) also retained their seats on the Ballinasloe Municipal Council.

Cllr Keaveney had previous served in the Tuam area before the boundary changes will implemented last year which brought Glenamaddy and Williamstown into the Tuam area.

There were casualties when Fine Gael’s Michael Finnerty and Aidan Donohue lost their seats and, obviously, they were bitterly disappointed with the outcome.

It means that there will be three new faces on the Ballinasloe Municipal Council.

Finnerty and Donohue along with Connemara’s Tom Healy are the only sitting councillors to lose their seats so far but there are expected to be further casualties in the Tuam electoral area where counting is now taking place.

Sixth Count Ballinasloe LEA: Connolly elected and Finnerty eliminated

Declan Tierney

Published

on

Sinn Fein’s Dermot Connolly has filed the third seat in the Ballinasloe area following the seventh count and the distribution of Mike Kelly’s votes.

The count also further widened the gap between independent Aisling Dolan and Fine Gael ‘s Aidan Donohue.

With Fine Gael’s outgoing councillor Michael Finnerty now eliminated, it would take a transfer of almost 400 votes to Donohue to tilt the balance – and that is highly unlikely.

The distribution of Finnerty’s vote marks the final count in the Ballinasloe Municipal Council area – with Dolan looking odds-on the take that final seat.

Sixth Count Ballinasloe LEA: Dolan extends advantage over Donohue

Declan Tierney

Published

on

After six counts in the Ballinasloe area, the locally based Independent candidate and HSE employee Aisling Dolan is closing in on a seat with just a couple of counts remaining.

The sixth count saw the elimination of Fianna Fail’s Mike Kelly – and he transferred heavily to both Dolan and Sinn Fein’s Dermot Connolly.

Tim Broderick (Ind) and Michael Connolly (FF) are still the only candidates elected in the six-seater electoral area so far.

However, three of the remaining four seats are expected to be taken by Peter Keaveney (FG), Declan Geraghty (Ind) and Dermot Connolly (SF).

After that, Aisling Dolan has opened up a gap of around 360 votes over Fianna Fail’s Aidan Donohue which will be very difficult to close.

And even with the likely elimination of his party colleague Michael Finnerty, it will be extremely unlikely that he will make up the difference.

Meanwhile, the count for the Tuam electoral area is just underway.
