Some interesting results from sources tonight in Donegal South West on an exit poll conducted there today. While voting during todays by-election was down on the 60% that voted in 2007, turnout today is expected to have been between 30 and 40%.
The results of the exit poll circulating among politics heads are as follows:
- Pearse Doherty (SF) 33%
- Brian Ó Domhnaill (FF) 21%
- Frank McBrearty (Lab) 19%
- Barry O’Neill (FG) 18%
- Thomas Pringle (Ind) 8%
Fianna Fail have managed to get a good turn out according to some tallies on turnout with FF strong holds of Dunfanaghy and Gortahork have a turnout out of over 60%, while it was 55% about Donegal Town. This should favour Ó Domhnaill.
But of course it will all come down to tranfers. Who will hget more of them? Doherty or Ó Domhnaill?
Counting gets underway at 9am tomorrow in Finn Valley Athletic Club, Stranorlar and a result is expected tomorrow evening.
