10 Feb 2016 12:12
The recounting of votes cast in the 2014 local elections in the Listowel Municipal Area has begun.

The 'count afresh' is being held at John Mitchells GAA hall in Tralee.
-
Count staff have started checking the number of ballot papers in bundles are correct.
-
Once complete, all 14,929 ballot papers will be mixed before being distributed for the full re-count.
-
Representatives of the 15 candidates who took part in the election for seven seats on Kerry County Council are present, including former Fianna Fáil senator Dan Kiely, whose Supreme Court challenge led to today's re- count.
-
Mr Kiely mounted the challenge after he lost out on a seat by just two votes.
-
The court was told that it has been observed that on days when there was more than one election, many people cast their first and second preferences on one ballot paper, before putting their third, fourth and fifth on other ballot papers.
