What next for Ganley???BYE BYE GANLEY

Ganley quits politics after conceding NW seat

Declan Ganley has conceded that he will not take a seat in the North West constituency and will now 'bow out of political life'.

Arriving at the count centre in Castlebar this evening, Mr Ganley said he accepted that people had not given him a mandate to represent them in the European Parliament.

He also stated he would play no part in the second Lisbon referendum, saying it remained to be seen whether Libertas as an organisation would be involved.

Last night, the Libertas leader had requested a recheck of ballots in the North West amid concerns that some of its votes may have been inadvertently allocated to other candidates.

However, that recheck found that Mr Ganley had been awarded 3,000 extra votes in error.

The 3,000 votes - for Independent candidate Fiachra O'Luain - were found in the Libertas bundles and Mr O'Luain's first count total has now been revised upwards accordingly.

Mr O'Luain said he is now asking gardaí in Castlebar to investigate how his votes ended up in Mr Ganley's bundles.

The three seats in the constituency are now expected to go to Fianna Fáil's Pat the Cope Gallagher, Fine Gael's Jim Higgins and to the Independent candidate Marian Harkin.

Labour's Susan O'Keeffe has been eliminated on the second count.

The returning officer has indicated that he intends to conclude the count tonight.

Did'nt the tool promise that he would go back to planting cabbages if he lost at the polls ?

Pure entertainment, Sinnott & John Mcguirk, two contrasting shades of right wing loonyism and campaigning for Libertas in Dublin, are at each others throats as well. Queue much mirth & sniggering in the Irish political blogosphere.
