Partial tallies show Fianna Fail and Fine Gael are in the running for a seat in the Dublin constituency for the European elections.

However, Sinn Fein could be dragged into a fight for the remaining two seats.

Barry Andrews of Fianna Fail and Fine Gael’s Regina Doherty are polling well and likely to hold their respective party’s seats according to the unofficial count by tally people.

Independent Ireland’s Niall Boylan is one who could well be in the running for a seat also, with good numbers across the four council areas.

Sinn Fein has been putting up strong performances in Dublin MidWest and in areas of Dublin Fingal, however they could fall into the scrap for the last two seats.

Aodhán O’Ríordáin of Labour, Brid Smyth of People Before Profit and incumbent MEP Clare Daly will also be in the mix however her vote could be down significantly on 2019.

Ciaran Cuffe and the Greens appear to be holding well in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown and in City areas.

However, with only a very partial tally being conducted, Dublin is still very much up in the air.

Local elections

There are 183 seats up for grabs across the four local authorities in the capital.

Dublin city council has the biggest number of spots with 63 councillors set to be elected, representing 11 local electoral areas.

In Fingal there are 91 candidates vying for the 40 seats available.
