Sinn Fein has been credited as the party to have made the biggest impact on the European and local government elections. In each of the three European constituencies as well as in the North the Party saw its candidates elected to the European parliament.
Today there has been speculation that the strength of the Sinn Fein vote could allow it to become a junior partner in a future coalition government with Fianna Fail.
