Fianna Fáil looks to be on course for a very bad result in the Ireland Midlands Northwest constituency in the European Elections.

If the RTE/TG4 Exit poll proves to be accurate the party could be seeing its vote in the sprawling constituency cut in half.

The exit poll showed its two candidates, Brendan Smith, and Anne Rabbitte, on just 6% and 3% respectively.

That compares with a total first preference vote in 2014 for its two candidates of 17.28%.

Pat 'the Cope' Gallagher polled 9.21%, but lost his seat while running-mate Thomas Byrne on 8.57%.

Fianna Fáil ended up in 2014 with no seat in the four seat Midlands Northwest constituency.

And it looks as if it will be empty handed again this time around.

Later today tally figures will emerged that will give a clearer picture.

The exit poll has a margin of plus or minus 4%.

The count will take place on Sunday.
