    PD leader struggling in Dublin South-East

    25/05/2007 – 5:02:58 PM

    In Dublin South-East outgoing Tánaiste Michael McDowell is struggling to retain his seat after the first count.

    He holds 4,450 votes with the quota at 6,629 votes.

    Fine Gael’s Lucinda Creighton tops the poll on 6,600 with Fianna Fáil’s Chris Andrews on 6,311 and Labour’s Ruairi Quinn holding 5,636 votes.

    The Green Party’s John Gormley is next on 4,685 with Mr McDowell behind him.

    here. It’s very tough to call this one. Daithí Doolan’s transfers will probably favour Gormley over FF/PD, but Callaghan’s will give McDowell a decent boost.

    Doolans transfers are in giving their positions as

    Gormley 5716
    McDowell 4601

    There are a total of 3541 Fianna Fail votes still to distribute.

    In 1997 out of just over 2000 FF transfers, 1464 went to McDowell and 270 to the Greens. So I wouldn’t write him off just yet, but neither would I like to be in his position!
