Box by Box: How the Edenderry area voted in the 2020 General Election

Brian Stanley’s utter dominance across the Laois-Offaly constituency was nowhere more evident than in the Edenderry Municipal District as he polled more first preferences than any other candidate.

LaoisToday has seen and studied the Fine Gael tallies from all six districts in the constituency (three in both Laois and Offaly). Though not 100% accurate they do give a very good indication of voting trends.

While it was understandable that the Portlaoise-based Sinn Fein TD would do very well in Laois, he had more than 100 votes more than Barry Cowen of Fianna Fail in this area.

Ken Smollen, a Tullamore-based Irish Democratic Party councillor, received the next most followed by Marcella Corcoran-Kennedy of Fine Gael and the Pippa Hackett from the Green Party.

As he was in the two other Offaly areas, Charlie Flanagan was again the best-performing Laois candidate.

The struggle for two fancied Offaly candidates was evident here too as Peter Ormond and John Leahy got just over 400 votes between them, in sharp contrast to Ormond performed in his side of Offaly where he was the biggest vote getter.
