Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Seats - (and change from 2016 general election)

FF - 38 (-6)
SF - 37 (+14)
FG - 35 (-15)
Greens - 12 (+10)
Labour - 6 (-1)
Soc Dems - 6 (+3)
People Before Profit - 5 (-1)
Independents/others 21 (-2)

Basically SF, Greens and Soc. Dems are the big winners, and FG, and FF the big losers. Overall a big swing to the left.

It's going to be very hard to decide who gets to be Prime minister with the parties so close even when you add in independents who are quite closely affiliated to the parties.

Even any two of the big three parties won't have an overall majority (81) and will require support from smaller parties/independents.

Some solution on the lines of Michael Martin (FF Leader) Taoiseach for 2 years followed by Mary Lou McDonald (SF)?
