40 boxes from North Central are putting Sinn Féin’s Thomas Gould out in front with a commanding 27%, while Fine Gael Senator Colm Burke is on 15%.
Pádraig O’Sullivan is third on 14%, while it could be close between current TD Mick Barry, former Lord Mayor Tony Fitzgerald and newly Independent Ken O’Flynn for the final seat.
