Sinn Féin's Mark Ward has topped the polls in the Dublin Mid-West by-election.
He received 24% of the first preference votes to be elected as TD for the constituency.
He was deemed elected after the ninth count, with 7,669 votes.
Fine Gael's Emer Higgins came in second, with Independent Paul Gogarty in third.
All three had been in the mix to win after the sixth count.
The number of people casting their ballots was a record low of just 26.5%.
Six candidates were eliminated after the first three counts, with the process continuing through the afternoon.
Mr Ward will now take up former Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald's vacant Dáil seat.
Earlier today, Mr Ward said he felt that his message had appeal to voters.
He said: "Our message out on the doors - talking to people all around Clondalkin, Lucan and Dublin Mid-West... about transport issues, about the housing crisis - has really resonated.
"The Sinn Féin supporters came out on the day."
