The elections are officially over and the results are in. Gaeilge agus Gàidhlig have overwhelmingly achieved a majority in the Dáil, with over 175 seats. Fine Gael, Cumann na nGael and An Slí Eile have each received 35 seats.

 

In the Seanad, however, the opposite is true for Gaeilge agus Gàidhlig. The party received 45 seats, as did Fine Gael. An Slí Eile achieved 30 seats while Cumann na nGael received none.

 

Seeing that her party now has an overwhelming majority in the Dáil, Órfhlaith Ní Dhéin announced that she has no intentions of going into coalition with any other party. She was nominated by the Dáil earlier today as Ceannaire. She accepted the nomination and was duly made Ceannaire after receiving a majority vote in her favor.
