Counting for the elected seats in the new Seanad has been completed, with Fianna Fáil emerging as the largest party.
Of the 49 elected seats, Fianna Fáil will hold 14, just ahead of Fine Gael on 13.
Sinn Féin will have seven seat, Labour will have five, and the Green Party will have one.
There will be eight independents.
However, Fine Gael will still end up as the largest party, as the 11 remaining seats will be filled by the Taoiseach once a new government is formed.
