Ivana Bacik of the Labour Party looks set to take the Dáil seat following the Dublin Bay South by-election.
Bacik leaped ahead of Fine Gael’s James Geoghegan and looks likely to maintain that position.
James Geoghegan was the favourite going into this by-election due to Fine Gael’s dominance in Dublin Bay South throughout the years.
Bacik is a Labour Senator and has ran for the Dáil on a number of occasions without previous success.
The win will represent a massive victory for Labour, who will now have seven TD’s on the benches.
However, this would be a significant defeat for Fine Gael, who have lost the seat following Eoghan Murphy’s resignation.
