Noonan to retain Green seat as FF’s Doran tops poll

No one was elected in the first count for Kilkenny City West electoral area Fianna Fail’s Matt Doran headed the poll on 1,319.

Fellow FF candidate, Joe Malone was the only other candidate to break 1,000 on 1,146 and is also assured of a seat. Fianna Fail should take three seats with Malcolm Noonan of the Greens likely to get a seat. However, the last two seats are too close to call and Fine Gael have an outside chance of two seats with four candidates. Sinn Fein’s Kathleen Funchion has 952 and that is still over 400 votes short of a quota and might just make it.
