All seats in the 33rd Dáil have been filled with Fianna Fáil the largest party by only one seat.

No party has more than 40 seats in what is the most fractured Dáil in history.

Cavan Monaghan was the final constituency to declare with the two sitting Fianna Fáil TDs Brendan Smith and Niamh Smyth re-elected.

That pushed Micheál Martin's party out to 38 seats, the most by one party, but Fianna Fáil's second worst ever election result.

Sinn Féin has had its best ever election, with Mary Lou McDonald just one behind Fianna Fáil on 37 seats.

Fine Gael managed to get 35 TDs elected, better than the 2002 result even though they got a smaller percentage of the vote.

There's 12 Green TDs in this Dáil, 4 times what Eamon Ryan had four weeks ago.

Labour lost a seat to return 6 TDs, while the Social Democrats won 4 extra to also return 6.

Five Solidarity People Before Profit TDs join Aontú's Peadar Toibin and 20 Independents.

No combination of the largest two parties can form a government, meaning there could be many weeks of negotiations ahead as politicians examine the historic result of this election and try to shape it into a government.
