Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yeah, but 3000 votes counted wrong in a single precinct smells like fraud a lot more than 3000 votes counted wrong in a hundred different precincts does.

I may be mistaken, but I assume the multiple rounds of the single transferable vote count are conducted centrally -- or at least the summing up of local counts.

Yes, it would appear O'Luain's and Ganley's counted votes were being stored adjacent to each other, and some bundles were misplaced prior to summation. Incompetence trumps malice once once.
