I think most of us are relieved that Lisbon is finally over, no matter how we voted. So I am sorry to throw this post up and bring it back. I will probably use one of the shots from the day as part of my 365 when I eventually get around to catching up properly, but for now here are some shots from the count in the RDS. You can see more on Pixie with some more to come

Their inspirational story just shows you that there are some liberties we take completely for granted, such as voting. If you haven’t voted in the Lisbon Reform Treaty referendum already, get your arse in gear and do so before 10pm. Your vote is one of the most important things you possess and really should not be taken for granted. Can you really complain if you haven’t exercised your right to vote?
[EDIT: 14:18] To include McDowell pic for Fiona, its at the bottom.
I was at the election count over the weekend in both the RDS and then up in Portmarnock for the Dublin North count. Here’s some of the pics. I took lots and lots and don’t want to make them public on Flickr or I will completely inundate Irishblogs.ie with a deluge of count pictures.
If you are interested in seeing more and have a Flickr account, add me as a friend on Flickr and once I add yourself then you’ll be able to see them. If you are already a friend you can see them here. (There’s even one of McDowell leaving politics!)
Counts are fascinating and exciting business, I hope the pics give you a flavour of the day. Oh and yes I was depressed at the outcome, I think Twenty puts it eloquently.
