Posted by


THE ninth count has seen little change to proceedings  fill the remaining seats in the Tralee Municipal District of Kerry County Council.

With four seats to fill, the wait goes on for Mikey Sheehy, Jim Finucane and Pa Daly who are likely to be elected, with sitting councillor Sam Locke in seventh place looking good for the last seat.

The ninth count at the John Mitchels GAA Complex, saw the 123 surplus votes of Terry O’Brien distributed. The tenth count will see Toireasa Ferris’ surplus of just 11 votes distributed. It could be a long evening…
