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:

  • Labour - whose candidates Alex White, Willie Penrose and Aodhán O’Riordáin were elected in Dublin South, Longford Westmeath and Dublin North Central, respectively. The party’s Alan Kelly will be joining them in the Dáil, having been elected in Tipp North without reaching the quota.
  • Lucinda Creighton – has been elected in Dublin South East for Fine Gael.
  • Ruairi Quinn – Labour’s candidate in Dublin South East has been elected.
  • Dominic Hannigan – the Meath East candidate for Labour now has a Dáil seat.
  • Kieran O’Donnell – the Limerick City candidate for Fine Gael has been elected.
  • Alan Farrell – the Fine Gael candidate has been elected in Dublin North.
  • “Paddy” - who likes to know what the story is, according to Enda Kenny. Kenny says the incoming government is “not going to leave our people in the dark”.
  • Wicklow voters - as the first count has finally come in. The constituency is fielding a record 25 candidates.

LOSERS:

  • Mary Coughlan – who was eliminated after the fourth count in Donegal South West.
  • Mary O’Rourke - who was eliminated after the second count in Longford Westmeath.
  • Dún Laoghaire voters – the Labour Party has called a recount for the constituency as about 150 votes lie between Ivanca Bacik and Richard Boyd-Barrett for the final seat. However, that recount will not begin until 10.30am tomorrow.
  • Dick Roche – who may lose his seat in Wicklow, according to the first count. No one was elected in the first count, which came in at 10.15pm.
