Cork City Council - The Results

Update May 27: The last two seats on Cork City Council have been filled this evening following the conclusion of a recount in the city's south central local authority area, writes Eoin English.

Independent Cllr Paudie Dineen and Sinn Fein Cllr Fiona Kerins have been re-elected, with just a single vote separating them after an 11-hour recount.

The recount was requested late on Sunday night by Sinn Fein after just 12 votes separated Cllr Kerins, the party's county councillor, Eoghan Jeffers, and Cllr Dineen after the 11th count.

At 7pm tonight, the state of poll after count 12 showed just nine votes between them.

But following the distribution of Sean Martin's surplus, Cllr Dineen moved from 1,058 to 1,069 votes, Kerins jumped from 1,062 to 1,066, with Jeffers gaining three votes to take him to 1,056.

The distribution of Dan Boyle's vote in count 14 was enough to elect Dineen on 1,071 and Kerins on 1,070.

Her election secured a fourth seat for Sinn Fein on the council - down from eight.

Ms Kerins said: "We didn't want to be in this place, standing against each other but the main thing is we took a seat for Sinn Fein in south central."

Mr Jeffers said while he was disappointed, the most important was to see a colleague elected.

The conclusion of the recount and the formal closure of the count at City Hall means that despite losing two seats over the weekend, Fianna Fáil has retained its position as the largest party on the 31-seat council, while Fine Gael has gained two seats to seven.

The first meeting of the new council is on June 7.
