OUTGOING FIANNA FAIL TD Dick Roche appears to have raised some hackles by asking for a recount in the Wicklow constituency.

A full recount has been granted and has been adjourned until 9am tomorrow. Roche had previously been declared eliminated from the constituency, just three votes behind fellow Fianna Fail candidate Pat Fitzgerald.

We ask you: Was Roche right to ask for a recount?

Poll Results:

No. He should just go. (755)
Yes. It is his democratic right, especially when there are such few votes in it. (573)
