Unoffical Tallies from the Meath constitutency show Sinn Féin have polled an excellent 12.2% of the vote in the consituency. While this obviously won't be enough to see Joe Reilly elected, it does represent an additonal almost 3% of voters compared with the 2002 election results . Sinn Féin seem to be placed third in this constituency, ahead of Labour and with more than DOUBLE the vote of the Progressive Democrats. I assume FG's slight lead will be enough to see McEntee elected considering the FG/Labour electoral pact since FF's disgraceful treatment of the Sinn Féin mandate in recent weeks will cost them a lot of Sinn Féin transfers, I would think.

More later when the official results and final counts from both consitutencies arrive.
