The official count may not be until tomorrow, but Cllr. Ciaran Brogan (FF) is set to top the poll in the Letterkenny Electoral Area.
Final tally figures show that he got in the region of 1,500 votes.
Although pleased with his figures, and how the party has fared in Donegal, he was not happy with the European Election outcome for Fianna Fáil in Midlands Northwest where the vote has more or less halved.
