The first councillors have been announced as elected in the Portlaoise Municipal District.

Watch our four minute video with joyous scenes at the end for two councillors.

And a cheer at the start after a very long wait!

Their surplus votes will be redistributed among remaining candidates for the second count on the way this evening.
