Live Blog: Local elections in the Republic…

Right, we are going to be following the southern local government count today (just when you thought it was safe), with a live blog of our own. If you want the genuine southern article, Suzy and co have already moved in… It starts about 9, but we don’t expect the action to start until 11am… Follow Sean O’Rourke and Rachel English on RTE radio from 11am until 4pm. Catch the TV coverage from 1-2 and 4-6 in the pm at RTE Live
