Tynock now at 87% with an hour to go.— Cllr. Brian O'Donoghue (@BrianODonoghue1) February 8, 2020
Reliably informed it cannot get to 100% on paper as some of the official electorate have passed away or are abroad.
But should be well over 90% by 10pm
Turnout in Tullow meanwhile was likely to finish just over 50% while Bennekerry was at 65% and Clonmore was at 60%.
