South Down

Margaret Ritchie SDLP 8,506 20.4%

Henry Reilly UKIP 2,332 5.6%
Cadogan Enright GRN 1,107 2.7%
David Griffin AP 864 2.1%

I had thought that one of the two Unionist seats here was vulnerable to demographic changes, but in fact there was sufficient residual strength - with transfers from the UK Independence Party - to ensure no change in party strength.

The most surprising result of the election for me - I really thought that the SDLP, who missed the last seat here by 44 votes in 2007, and were favoured by boundary changes, would make the breakthrough; but in the end they were beaten by over 400 votes by the second UUP candidate, in a rare (and crucial) case of the UUP taking a seat from the DUP rather than the other way round.
