Sinn Féin candidate Paddy Holohan looks set to win a seat in South Dublin County Council for the party.
The UFC fighter from Jobstown in Dublin has been predicted to top the Tallaght South ward.
The Independent reports that initial tallies put him on close to the quota needed on the first count.
Likely new Sinn Fein councillor – and UFC fighter – Paddy Holohan tells the Irish Examiner he had an advantage over other candidates “cos everyone else was sh***ng themselves”. Asked if Dail is next, he says: “Nah, I don’t want to be that corrupt… Only messing.” #iestaff #le19 pic.twitter.com/KAEfVeeI1P
