There’s little between all five and if things fall a certain way, others may still be in with a chance.The outcome will mostly likely depend on transfers between the two Fine Gael candidates.Tallies from the Milford Municipal District AreaLiam Blaney (Fianna Fáil) 1,676Maria Doherty (Sinn Féin) 787Eimer Friel (Fine Gael) 695Dermot Hardy (Aontú) 328Noel McBride (Fine Gael) 721Ian McGarvey (Independent) 779Charlie McGinley (Independent) 65Declan Meehan (Independent) 685John O’Donnell (Independent) 1,940center_img Publicans in Republic watching closely as North reopens further Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Google+ WhatsApp Pinterest WhatsApp Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Facebook Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
