Counting has been completed in all 39 Dáil constituencies in Election 2020 and the make-up of the next Dáil has been finalised.

Fianna Fail will be the largest party in Ireland’s parliament following last weekend’s general election, but the big winner is Sinn Fein which saw a massive upswing in support.

Fianna Fail finished with 38 seats, one ahead of Sinn Fein on 37, with Fine Gael, the party of Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in third on 35, having entered the election as the largest party on 47.
