South Constituency Results Delayed By Full Recount

In the European elections, while all seats in the other constituencies have been filled, it will be next week before the final results will be known in the Ireland South Constituency, which takes in County Wicklow. 

A full recount is to take place, after a request by Sinn Féin's Liadh Ni Riada late last night. 
She's only around 300 votes behind the Green Party's Grace O'Sullivan in the race for the last seat.
Fine Gael's Sean Kelly and Fianna Fáil's Billy Kelleher have already been elected - with Fine Gael's Deirdre Clune and Independent Mick Wallace also expected to take seats.
A recheck of every bundle will start this morning to make sure the O'Sullivan and Ní Riada votes are all in the right place - with the full recount expected to start on Tuesday.
