You are very welcome back to our live blog here on Shannonside FM. It was a long, long, long, long night at the Bush Hotel and action finished up at 4.30am.

Returning officer Mary Quinn called a halt to proceedings after the seventh count in Ballinamore LEA when a full recount was called by one of the candidates and it was granted.

At that stage  16 of the 18 county councillors has been elected in Leitrim, including the full complement in Carrick-on-Shanon and Manorhamilton.

So it’s back to the Bush hotel this afternoon for a full recount in the Ballinamore LEA where Paddy O’Rourke, Caillian Elis, Brendan Barry,  and Ita Reynolds Flynn has secured seats.

Ends McGloin looked set to also pick up a seat and it was then left to Pat Gilhooley and Gerry Dolan to fight it out for that last seat.

We will have full coverage from the Bush Hotel beginning at 2pm and updates on Twitter and Facebook.
