Ellimination Of Wicklow's Andrew Doyle Expected To Help Party Colleague In European Elections

We should get a clearer picture of who'll be elected to represent Ireland South in the European Parliament later.

After 14 counts, only Fine Gael's Sean Kelly has been elected.
Following a big boost from transfers yesterday, independent Mick Wallace is in a strong position to take a seat as is Fianna Fail's Billy Kelleher.
Then it appears to be a race between Fine Gael's Deirdre Clune, the Green Party's Grace O'Sullivan and Sinn Fein's Liadh Ni Riada for the last seat:
For Deirdre Clune, the  elimination of fellow Fine Gael candidate, Junior minister and Wicklow T.D.  Andrew Doyle, will be crucial if she's to be in with a shot.
