Posted by


Green Party’s Cleo Murphy.

GREEN Party candidate Cleo Murphy has been eliminated after the seventh count at the Killarney Sports and Leisure Centre this evening, leaving just one more count to determine the destination of the fifth and final seat in the Kerry constituency.

The seventh count distributed Brendan Griffin’s surplus of 1,758 with 535 going to Fianna Fáil’s Norma Foley and 452 transferred to John Brassil. This leaves Foley with a 2,446 lead over her party colleague with one count left to go. There were 353 non-transferable papers.

Cleo Murphy of the Green Party received 418 transfers and as the candidate left with the lowest amount of votes, she is now eliminated. Her transferable votes will now be distributed among the two remaining candidates in count eight.
