Ding-Dong

At this stage, 8.20pm, it would appear, although not confirmed, that Tony McLoughlin FG will be re-elected.

A ding-dong battle for the last seat will see Gerry Reynolds and Eamon Scanlon go head to head. 

Some seasoned observers say that after surplus distribution as little as 60 to 70 votes could separate them.

This would no doubt trigger a full recount which would most likely be deferred until tomorrow.

Perry arrives at Count Centre



John Perry, who yesterday conceded defeat in General Election 2016, has arrived an the Count Centre accompanied by his wife Marie and son Jude.

He is receiving a warm welcome from supporters and well wishers.

He has represented the constituency in Dáil Eireann for four consecutive terms.

He said he had enjoyed his tenure immensely, however 'you win some you lose some'.

His 4,773 votes are expected to be distributed shortly.

Mr Perry refused to back criticism from his director of elections who said yesterday that the party’s message was arrogant and out of touch with rural Ireland. “I am not here to criticise, complain or judge anyone today,” he said.

Asked what went wrong for him, he said: “we did not get enough votes”.

Pressed on whether he had paid a price for not delivering on promises such as the return of cancer services to Sligo University Hospital,  Mr Perry pointed out that a contract for mammography services had been signed last week. “I did my best”, he added.

Pointing out that he had been the longest serving TD in the constituency since the foundation of the State, Mr Pery said he had a lot to be thankful for. “ I have a very supportive wife and son and at the end of the day they are the most important people to me. I have them and I have my health”.


















           John Perry was besieged by journalists at the Count Center, he is photographed by
           Sligo Today accompanied by his son (r) Jude at just one of several media briefings.
