Not exactly done to approved balloting standards with a big pixture of DO'D above the voting choice, but hey, I spose the man needs help.

I've just voted half a dozen* times for Rory. :cheers:

The Leinater Leader is doing something similar in Kildare. The big semi is Sir Ernest Shackleton v Saint Brigid :lol:

You may be interested to know that Sir Ernest romped home with a staggering 85% of the popular vote and will play Orla Tinsley :scratch: in the final.

Meanwhile, keep voting for the G-man.

Looks like they've updated their software - they seem to have plugged the "vote early and vote often by deleting cookies" option. :lol:

Who'da thunk that Donegal could evolve that quickly? :lol:

Or maybe they closed the poll early because their abacus ran out of beads?

Comfortable victory for Rory in the end and now faces Enya in the final.

Jim Bowen must be the returning officer. My vote will be counted in "a few minutes". Smashing.

Their website's weird - it's allowing multiple voting again just by clearing cookies.

But in the interests of fairness, I only voted once this time*







*only once, but 12 times >EW

Both excellent but in totally different ways, Rory is lawnmowing stuff on the headphones and Enya is lying around in front of a warm fire on a cold wet night chilling out music.

Anyone not voting for Rory Gallagher needs to be culled.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?
