THE FIRST MEMBER of the European Parliament for Ireland has been elected – and it’s Fine Gael’s Mairead McGuinness.

The serving MEP was again successful in the Midlands North West constituency, and exceeded the quota on the first count.

The quota to be reached was 118,986 and McGuinness received 134,630 votes.

She told RTÉ that her win was “testament to the team around me”, and thanked her husband in particular.

McGuinness said that it is “what we hoped would happen”.

She’ll serve another five-year term in parliament, with the numbers currently indicating a close race to join her in the constituency.
