There may be good news for the Green Party in the elections for the European Parliament.

That is the prediction from a RTÉ TG4 Exit Poll which was conducted by RED C.

With the latest analysis, presenter Eileen Whelan, who is standing in for Aine Lawlor, is joined by our political correspondents Mícheál Lehane and Paul Cunningham on Your Politics.

The podcast is available here on iTunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud.


The RTÉ TG4 Exit Poll has a margin of error of 4% in the constituencies.

But even taking that into account, it indicates the Green Party's Ciarán Cuffe could be on track to win the first seat in Dublin.

The party may also be in contention for two other seats in Ireland South and Midlands-North-West.

The bigger parties look to have a battle on their hands if they are to realise their publicly expressed targets.

Today, RED C spoke to 3,230 voters in polling stations nationwide.

The findings all indicate a long count to fill the 13 European Parliament seats.

Nationally the exit poll has a margin of error of 3% and suggests Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael will fight it out to take top spot in the local elections as the votes are counted over the next few days.

It also suggests the divorce referendum is on track to be passed by a large majority of 87%.
