We’ve added the count data for all the constituencies in the 1992 General Election.
The big winner of the election was the Labour Party, doubling their first preference share of the vote, from the previous election.
The election saw Moosajee Bhamjee (Labour Party) become the first Muslim Teachta Dála (TD).
We’ve just added all the count data for the 1997 General Election.
This was the election that saw the end of the ‘Rainbow Coalition’ and the start of a new Fianna Fáil–Progressive Democrats government. There was a big drop in support for Labour and the PDs, while there were gains for Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil.
The Green Party picked up an extra seat, with John Gormley elected in Dublin South–East. He narrowly beat Progressive Democrat – Michael McDowell for the last seat. Sinn Féin won a seat for the first time since 1957 in the Cavan–Monaghan constituency with Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin. The Socialist Party also gained a seat in Dublin West.
