The Returning Officer for Ireland South says he expects to have the second count finished by the end of the day.

The counting of all votes should be finished by 4pm, with MEP Seán Kelly virtually certain of taking the first seat.

A second count is likely to see Fianna Fáil’s Billy Kelleher returned to Brussels for another five years.

Speaking to RedFM news, Martin Harvey outlines how the day will pan out at Nemo Rangers in Cork:

"If Mr. Kelly gets elected on the first count, that puts us in a position. We have to count all of his papers. the likelihood is we'll do that today. Whatever time we finish doing that will be the last action today and if that's ten o'clock or twelve o'clock, or nine o'clock or ten o'clock, that's when we'll finish up after the second count. That's the plan at the moment. That might change, we never know. But it's going ahead, slowly, but surely".
