EVERY HOUR – on the half hour – TheJournal.ie brings you your fix of election tallies, predictions and results. Here’s how the winners and losers of GE11 are playing out so far.

WINNERS:

  • Jan O’Sullivan – the Labour candidate took the final Limerick City seat.
  • Jonathan O Brien – who took a seat in Cork North Central, for Sinn Féin, on the eighth count.
  • Dessie Ellis – the Sinn Féin candidate took the last seat in Dublin North West.
  • Liam Twomey - the Fine Gael candidate was elected in Wexford, without reaching the quota.
  • Paul Kehoe – who also took a seat for Fine Gael in Wexford without hitting the quota.
  • John Brown – who reached the quota and has been elected for Fianna Fáil in Wexford.

LOSERS:

  • Frank Fahey – the Fianna Fáil candidate has lost his Galway West seat after being eliminated from the count.
  • John O’Donoghue – another Fianna Fáil candidate has been eliminated from the count – this time it’s in Kerry South.
  • Paul Sommerville - the high-profile Independent candidate has been eliminated in Dublin South East.
  • Kerry South voters –  who will be waiting a bit longer for news of their representatives in the 31st Dáil, as counting is suspended with nobody elected.
