Your new-look county council


THE final results from the ninth count in the local elections in Carlow town saw Tom O’Neill regain the seat he lost in 2014, while John Cassin and Adrienne Wallace won the final seats.

Ms Wallace, a Solidarity-People Before Profit candidate, is one of the success stories of the campaign, ultimately moving away from Wayne Fennell in the depths of the Carlow counts, largely with help from Ciarán Dooley’s surplus votes.

“Working class women – we can make a change,” Ms Wallace said, speaking to KCLR in the aftermath of her election.
