Counting has resumed in count centres across the country, as political parties pick over the election result.
Sinn Féin has won the election but is still likely to end up behind Fianna Fáil in terms of seats.

Fianna Fáil is going to end up somewhere in the low-to-mid 40s.
While Fine Gael is seemingly going to be in the 30s and could be behind Sinn Féin when all the votes are counted.
