I love the tallies, they add a bit of tension and interest to an otherwise long and boring task of counting votes. It will be a real shame when e-voting replaces the tension of the paper count and we get the result of the election 30 minutes after the voting ends.

RTE has a web page dedicated to the tallies. It doesn't give a breakdown by candidate but it's beginning to look very good for Fianna Fail. There wont be much of a change for the next 5 years. I hope Bertie doesn't view it as a "steady as she goes" vote and just reappoint his old cabinet.

This is a great day. I rarely cry with such joy. I've opened some Jack Daniel's Silver Select and will now light a cigar...
