Whingers remark has little impact

ANY fears over Taoiseach Enda Kenny's vote being affected in his home town by his 'whingers' remark have not materialised.

Latest tallies show Kenny on 5,708 votes in Castlebar. With boxes currently being counted from Ballina and Castlebar, he's leading the field on 6,610 votes overall.

With more than two thirds of the Castlebar boxes open, Kenny has 45% of the vote.

The second Castlebar candidate, Lisa Chambers of Fianna Fáil, is running at 2,876 votes, or 22% of the vote in the county town.

Importantly for her, in the fight for the fourth seat, she's keeping up with FG's Michelle Mulherin – Chambers on 3,153 and Mulherin on 3,586 overall.
