Extensive count coverage on Ocean FM

Ocean FM will have extensive coverage of the election counts in Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal thorough the weekend.

Our broadcasts get underway at 9am on Saturday morning and we’ll have a full reporting crew and expert analysts in the count centres at Summerhill College, the Bush Hotel in Carrick on Shannon, and the Aura Centre in Letterkenny and John Bosco Centre in Donegal.

We’ll also be providing exclusive online video coverage of each count.

The tallies from the Sligo and Leitrim counts will be uploaded automatically to the Ocean FM website, so you can see the tallies as they happen, as part of an ongoing collaboration with IT Sligo.

IT Sligo lecturer, Padraig Harte, has been telling Niall Delaney how it will give people an unprecedented insight into how our tally system works, and give instant access to tally figures.
