    Are these the official results for Thurles as there doesn’t seem to be any mention of Seamus Hanafin whom I was told got first seat. Are my sources wrong or are yours?? I’m not trying to be smart I just want to know the results.

  • Hi Lisa.
    Firstly: is never wrong. The election results you are looking at refer to Local Town Council Elections in which Mr Hanifin did not compete. However to answer your query, I can confirm that Mr Hanafin did successfully compete in North Tipp County Council elections in 2009 and was elected on the first count with 1,590 votes (9 votes above the Quota required of 1,581) Valid votes cast were 9,485 and candidates numbered 5 in total for the Electoral area: Thurles.

    Hi Lisa,
    Although we don’t admit it publically, between you and me,(Hope no one is listening) yes, we make loads of mistakes every single day. My grandmother always says “The man who never made a mistake, never made anything”
    Thanks for sticking with us X
