We have just had the distribution of Carthy’s transfers and an interesting situation has emerged, Browne is in line for the third seat, but Verona Murphy is only 90 votes behind him.
Kehoe is 59 votes ahead of his Fine Gael colleague Michael D’Arcy. And it looks like Malcolm Byrne is going to be a casualty.
The latest figures are as follows; James Browne (+653) 11,085; Verona Murphy (+1,981) 10,995; Malcolm Byrne (+374) 7,909; Paul Kehoe (+356) 7,416 Michael D’Arcy (+337) 7,357. Non-transferable 2,303. Howlin’s 417 transfers are now being distributed.
