Local Elections 2024 - Results

    Im hoping every government party as well as sinn fein lose here

  • Registered Users Posts: 154 ✭✭cudsy1

    Ballot papers only being filled out to 3-7 candidates

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,321 ✭✭✭✭

    Looks like Sinn Fein vote has held up OK in working class areas of Dublin. I suspect they'll be slightly relieved.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,367 ✭✭✭Jinglejangle69

    Looke like Daly, Wallace, O Riordain and Brid Smith back in.


    And Lynne Boylan.

    If people felt strongly about immigration then they have made it worst voting these back in.

    That's based on only a few ballot boxes being counted? The ward they're from will have a big influence on initial results.

    I didn't think O'Riordan was being given much chance of election.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,005 ✭✭✭downthemiddle

    There’s absolutely no way that Daly , O’Riordain and Smith are all getting elected. What’s your source for this claim?

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,453 CMod ✭✭✭✭magicbastarder

    Many ballot seem to be stopping after three.

    Interesting. People overwhelmed with choice?

    This is a local elections thread...

    What are they doing in the Hyacinth House?

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,377 ✭✭✭✭Loafing Oaf

    So the Dublin contingent will be Daly, AOR, Smith & Lynn Boylan? No FF, FG or Niall Boylan?

    Tally from Dingle LEA - high turnout

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,274 ✭✭✭bloopy

    Apparently a significant number of spoiled votes in some areas - ticks next to the candidates rather than numbered.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,696 ✭✭✭Economics101

    A question about valid/spoiled votes, If there are, say, 26 candidates and you undertake the heroic task of ranking all 26, there is some chance that you will make a mistake. Suppose you get 1 to 11 done and then in searching the blank spaces for yourremaining and probably weak preferences you omit a No 12. You have votes marked 13 to 25.

    Is the whole ballot paper invalid, or is it treated as a 1 to 11 vote, with the remainder ignored (or invalid)?

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,588 ✭✭✭MacDanger

    I'd say it wouldn't be a problem until the count reached your 12th preference and even then, you've clearly indicated your next order of preference. If you had filled in 2 x 13 or something, I'd expect it to be spoiled once it reached that count though

    I hope all far right lunatics including babers/so-called 'pro-lifers' and anti-migrant fanatics do not get elected …. they have not one positive thing to offer …. they have nothing to solve our REAL problems …. all they can do is spout anti-migrant, anti-gay and anti-EU drivel ….. they would destroy the economy of this country in months if they gained power …. Good to see so far in tallies they are indeed not doing well at all …

  • Registered Users Posts: 39,888 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy

    Newstalk saying that from the tallies in cork city, it’s looking like the sitting councillors are doing well.

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,160 ✭✭✭✭Thelonious Monk

    Tallies showing that Green Party candidate Michael Pidgeon is said to be “sweeping” the South West Inner City LEA.

    Meanwhile, the Greens’ Claire Byrne is leading across several ballot boxes in the South East Inner City.

    Excellent. I really hope we keep a few Green councillors. I am in Spain currently and couldn't vote am pretty gutted about it.

    Seems people are voting for stability in unstable times. Still early in the counts though.

    All Eyes On Rafah

  • Registered Users Posts: 39,888 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy

    Just going on the tallies being announced on newstalk the Green Party wipe out doesn’t seem to be happening. The FG side seem happy based on the tallies.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,494 ✭✭✭tinpib

    Would be great if people could start adding links to tallies, updates, counts etc from around the country.

    For Sligo/Leitrim the local radio station Ocean FM has the great info inc Google sheets for tallies updated in real time, and 3 separate live streams for each of the count centres, Donegal being the 3rd.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,838 ✭✭✭✭dulpit

    FYI, I don't think any counting has happened anywhere yet, it's all tallies. To echo what's been said, looks like incumbancy is a big help for sitting councillors. I heard Jackie Healy Rae (Michael's son) tallied over 30% which is pretty amazing.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,307 ✭✭✭✭castletownman

    Find the delusion of some people running locally hilarious. One candidate in my LEA, PBP of course, whose sole aim seemed to be legalising drugs, tallied 110. Another, who did dismally for the Greens last time, has done so again.

    Why put yourself through the embarassment? Have they no support network to tell them to perhaps not go through the hassle?

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,321 ✭✭✭✭

    No seat for Ruth Coppinger in Castleknock it seems.

  • Registered Users Posts: 594 ✭✭✭Yakov P. Golyadkin

    I'm sure a handful of the swivel eyed loons will get in, the rest can return to harassing ordinary people and crying about the 'establishment'.

    I'm most interested in how SF will do, they had a bad run out in 2019 and up to a year ago were looking like they'd be going into this election on a high - Will they now be happy to do a little better than 2019? Will they do better than 2019?

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,202 ✭✭✭Cluedo Monopoly

    It would be very hard for SF to do worse than 2019 but we shall see. It's the first time ever they have ever run a candidate in each LEA.

    The real winners look like Independents.

    What are they doing in the Hyacinth House?
