The Final Result
With many of us beginning to think that the count in Longford-Westmeath won't be finished before the next election is called, I said I'd go ahead and put up the final results. Not much of a shift since the last post: Aodhán Ó Ríordán losing his seat in Dublin Bay North being the only real shift. I'm also assuming that Willie Penrose's single seat margin of victory will hold.
If we hark all the way back to the contrast with the incumbents, then there has been a real greening of the map with the rise of Sinn Féin and resurrection of Fianna Fáil. In many instances, this has been at the cost of Labour, who have had a terrible election.
Update: Longford-Westmeath finished with no change to the anticipated map.
