Four by-elections

Counting of votes is continuing this afternoon in four by-elections around the country.

A first count result is due shortly in the Dublin Mid-West By-Election, which has seen a record low turnout of around 24 percent.

Sinn Féin's Mark Ward is in line to top the poll, with Fine Gael's Emer Higgins, who's defending Frances Fitzgerald's seat, in second, on just under 19 percent

Fianna Fail's Padraig O'Sullivan is on course to top the poll in Cork North Central.

The final tally shows he has 28 percent of first preference votes followed by Fine Gael's Colm Burke and Sinn Fein's Thomas Gould.

Fianna Fail's Malcolm Byrne looks set to top the poll in the Wexford by-election.

The final tally for the constituency shows that Fine Gael's Verona Murphy and Labour's George Lawlor are in with a chance.

Meanwhile, the Green Party looks set to win its first-ever by-election in Dublin Fingal with Joe O'Brien taking back the seat long held by former party leader Trevor Sargent.

On close to a complete tally, O'Brien had 22.5 percent with Fianna Fáil's Lorraine Clifford Lee the closest on 18.6 percent
