ID is the only upset for O'Neill

It was a brave security man at the Mid-Ulster count who told fiery Sinn Fein leader Michelle O'Neill that she couldn't get into the hall without showing her ID document.

The fast-talking Sinn Fein chief from Clonoe had to hot-foot it back to her car to get the correct documentation before she was allowed in to hear that she'd been elected on the first count.

But Michelle's ID fail turned out to be just a tiny blip in a day that was packed with positive news for her and her party as the election counts unfolded across Northern Ireland.
