Early Donegal EA Tally figures offer a mixed message

Big variation in votes for Michael McMahon in early tally figures

As early tally figures emerge for the Donegal Electoral Area, there are mixed messages for candidates, Tom Conaghan's vote in one Ballintra box has almost halved while Micheál Naughton has done well there according to tally figures while in a box from St Macartan's NS in Bundoran, Diarmaid Doherty (Ind) has done very well with Michael McMahon gaining 15 votes, a surprise to many. However, in another Bundoran box McMahon has 120 votes, so the message is very mixed. Already a trend of candidates voting for candidates in their own town/area in the Donegal EA is apparent
