Peggy Nolan returned to Longford council

Fine Gael councillor Peggy Nolan has been re-elected to Longford county council on the 8th count.

A 33 vote transfer from the surplus of Uruemu Adejinmi of Fianna Fail brought her to 841, just 3 votes over the quota.

In the Granard electoral area shortly afterwards, Fine Gael candidate Frank Kilbride was eliminated on the fourth count.
