Prime Minister Enda Kenny's outgoing coalition came first in Ireland's general election but fell far short of a governing majority, final results showed on Thursday, after a vote marked by anger against austerity.
Kenny's Fine Gael party won 50 out of 158 parliamentary seats, followed by Fianna Fail with 44 seats and anti-austerity Sinn Fein with 23 seats.
Fine Gael's Labour partner in the outgoing coalition won just seven seats.
