'Phenomenal Results' - words describing this count for the Local Elections at the RDS

I graciously want to thank all those who voted for me and supported my campaign. Yesterday my count was only described in the RDS as phenomenal after passing 8 other candidates with transfers carrying me into the final round. These results prove that the people of Dublin North have expressed the need for ongoing consultation in the decision making process instead of waiting every 4 or 5 years for election time. I am delighted that our campaign for self governance has successfully managed to raise a further awareness on the differences between democratic representation and political party representation. I look forward to meeting my voters personally and thanking them for showing a great interest in their own community while helping to create a better future where everyone will be given a say on the laws and rules that govern our lives. My special thanks to the 833 people who took the time to travel to the polling stations to give me their Number 1 vote leading to the total of 1278 including transfers.

Overall an amazing result after a small personally funded budget and yet we still came out ahead of 8 party candidates - some of whom used thousands of euros of tax payers money promoting themselves.

The results for the Beaumont; Donaghmede ward - as and how they happened.
