Counting of votes is now underway across the region and across the country.

It will be an interesting count, following the exit poll last night which shows a three-way tie between the main parties.

The Ipsos MRBI poll for RTÉ, TG4 and the Irish Times shows the most fractured political landscape in recent memory.

The exit poll of more than 5,000 people shows Fine Gael, Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil all on 22 per cent support.

The RTÉ/Irish Time survey has the Greens on 7.9, Labour on 4.6, the Social Democrats on 3.4, Solidarity People Before Profit on 2.8 and Independents and others with 14.5 per cent of the vote.

In Mayo, 15 candidates are seeking the 4 Dail seats  -boxes are now being opened at the TF Royal Theatre in Castlebar, where Teresa O'Malley and her team of analysts are bringing us tally results as they're available.

Also over the course of today, tonight and into tomorrow, we will bring you all the latest from the count centres in Roscommon-Galway, Galway East, Galway West and Sligo Leitrim.
