Sinn Féin has withdrawn its request for a full recount in Ireland South in the European Elections.
The decision means the party's candidate, Liadh Ní Riada, has lost her seat.
Counting has finished for the day at Nemo Rangers GAA club in County Cork.
A full recount of votes got underway at the centre this morning after the first round ended with only 326 votes separating Ms Ní Riada and the Green Party's Grace O'Sullivan.
They were competing for the fifth seat in the constituency – which will only come into play if and when the UK leaves the EU.
Fine Gael’s Sean Kelly and Fianna Fáil’s Billy Kelleher had already been deemed elected but could not be declared until the recount is complete.
Independent TD Mick Wallace is set to come in third.
Fine Gael's Deirdre Clune was in fourth place; however, counting will resume tomorrow to confirm the final positions - with Senator O'Sullivan now capable of coming in ahead of her.
In a statement this evening, Ms Ní Riada congratulated Senator O’Sullivan on her election.
"I want to warmly congratulate Grace on her election to the European Parliament.
"I am happy that the democratic process has delivered the clarity we sought given that the initial difference was so tight.
She said he is "incredibly proud” of her time as an MEP adding that she did her very best to deliver for her constituents and defend Ireland’s interests in Europe.
