Counting for the Seanad elections in Trinity College Dublin.
Do you remain confused by the Seanad electoral process?
Don’t worry. It’s designed that way.
There are 60 seats in the senate.
Six senators are elected by graduates — three each by the National University of Ireland and Trinity College Dublin.
43 are elected by local councillors, TDs and out-going senators to five panels [culture and education, agriculture, labour, industry and commerce, and public administration].
And 11 senators are nominated by the Taoiseach, whomever that might be.
