A number of high profile TDs are going to lose their seats as counting continues in the general election.

Minister Regina Doherty is in serious trouble in Meath East and looks likely to lose out.

The tide has gone out for Shane Ross in Dublin Rathdown and the Sport Minister is set to lose his seat.

Children's Minister Katherine Zappone is also set to be crowded out in a highly-competitive Dublin South-West constituency.

There is also more in danger among the ranks of junior ministers.

Andrew Doyle in Wicklow is almost certain to lose out.

One of the two Wexford ministers will also lose their seat - and the battle for survival is on between Paul Kehoe and Micheal D'Arcy.

Damien English is in a three-way fight in Meath West with Aontú's Peadar Toibin and Fianna Fáil's Shane Cassells.

Catherine Byrne is also in a fight in Dublin South-Central but could keep the seat.

Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy looks set to hold on in Dublin Bay-South at the expense of his colleague Kate O'Connell.

The Government Chief Whip Sean Kyne is also in danger of losing out in Galway West, with his fellow TD Hildegarde Naughton favoured to hold on.

While in Clare, Fine Gael could lose out on the two seats it currently holds with Minister Pat Breen among those vulnerable.
