Comment: the earlier tallies underestimated the final first preference votes for Patricia Ryan (SF) and Martin Heydon (FG) and Cathal Berry (Ind).
Now Fianna Fáil's Fiona O'Loughlin, Labour's Mark Wall and Cathal Berry (Ind) now fight it out to secure the fourth and final seat, with transfers being vital and less than 200 votes between the three candidates.
Eliminated now will be Anita Mhic Gib (Aontú) 697 and Roisín Uí Bhroin (PBP) 598
An no one has reached the quota of 11, 816, the second count will commence.
