Candidates give their reaction to the electronic counts to "Morning Ireland". Neither the winners nor the losers are happy with the method of presentation of the results.
Joe Higgins of the Socialist Party, remarks that, "If the last two hours is anything to go by, bring back the tally people... We weren't subjected to the type of shambles that we have here".
Nora Owen of Fine Gael does not believe that, "...it was handled tonight in a way that had any dignity or humanity in it".
