LABOUR Party candidate Gillian Wharton Slattery was eliminated from the Tralee Electoral Area contest on the third count earlier today.

She received 29 extra votes from Pa Daly of Sinn Fein’s surplus bringing her total vote to 479. It still left her as the candidate with the lowest amount of votes and therefore she was eliminated.

Her votes are now being distributed to other candidates and the fourth count is expected within the hour.

That count will see Terry O’Brien edge closer to being re-elected. He needs an extra 130 votes to reach the quota of 1,599.
