McGuinness predicts ‘watershed’ elections

Martin McGuinness

Sinn Féin's Martin McGuinness says he expects a “watershed election” across the island of Ireland for the party's candidates in the European and local elections.

A further 24 countries have until 10pm tomorrow night to cast their vote in the European elections.

So a declaration of which Irish candidates have been elected to the European Parliament cannot be made until counting is complete.

Results in the local elections will begin coming through this afternoon.
