More problems for Cowen.

The first preference votes in the Donegal South West seat are now counted with Pearse Doherty the Sinn Fein candidate having nearly double (39.75% to 21.2%) the first preference votes to Fianna Fail's, Brian O' Domhnaill. Barring a disaster on the second preference votes it looks like a Sinn Fein gain from Fianna Fail which reduces Brian Cowen's majority in the Dail down to two independants with a difficult budget to pass, not to mention a January General Election.

It's going to be an interesting couple of months in Leinster House, any bets on how Fine Gael will vote on the budget?

UPDATE - Fianna Fail concede defeat.
