    Bacik ‘over the moon’ as she wins Dublin Bay South byelection

    Labour’s Ivana Bacik has won the Dublin Bay South byelection, after being elected on the ninth count with 13,382 votes.

    The Labour Senator was elected after receiving an overwhelming majority of transfers from Sinn Féin’s Lynn Boylan and the Green Party’s Claire Byrne.

    Ms Bacik’s total vote haul was 13,382, meaning she missed the quota of 13,442.

    Fine Gael’s James Geoghegan came second with a total of 9,235 in the ninth count.

    Ms Bacik received 3,908 transfers from the two candidates compared with 970 for Mr Geoghegan.

    Ms Bacik waited with her husband Alan Saul, brother Max Bacik and daughters Cyan and Louie for the final declaration on the ninth count, which makes her Labour’s seventh and only female TD.

    The Senator earlier said she was “overwhelmed and over the moon” to have topped the poll in the byelection.
