Bruckless man Danny Byrne has been re-elected to the Dublin City Council for the South East Inner City.

The south Donegal man was elected for Fine Gael on the eleventh count on Sunday, with a 10.3% share of first preference votes.

Mr Byrne is an estate agent and has been living in the Ringsend area since 2005.

Part of the Lost at Sea Tragedies Organisation, Byrne lost his father and brother in a tragic accident in 1981 at sea.

Francis Byrne and 16-year-old Jimmy Byrne, and three other crew died when their fishing vessel Skifjord sank off Burtonport.

In 2018, the Byrne family who had secured the Ombudsman’s support for State compensation over exclusion from a Government scheme were finally been sent a cheque for a six-figure sum.

The Bruckless residents received an ex-gratia payment from Minister for Marine Michael Creed, after a 14-year battle over the exclusion from the “Lost at Sea scheme” to support families whose vessels had sunk.
