Stage 6:
Of the 1454 votes transferred from Fitzpatrick to Bradley, 1137 went to O'Neill and 159 to Ritchie, thus 1296 (89.1%) to the SDLP; 76 went to Ruane, 23 to Clarke and 9 to McConvey, thus 108 (7.4%) to SF; 12 went to Nesbitt and 4 to Donaldson, thus 16 (1.1%) to the UUP; and 34 (2.3%) were non-transferable.

Stage 9: Of the 2503 votes transferred from Donaldson to Nesbitt (UUP), 286 went to O'Neill and 256 to Ritchie, thus 542 (21.7%) to the SDLP; 9 went to Ruane and 8 to Clarke, thus 17 (0.7%) to SF; and 1944 (77.7%) were non-transferable.

NB The official results sheets tally the 666 invalid votes as non-transferable from the start, and give the successive non-transferable totals in each count as 666, 713.16, 732.24, 1037.44, 1124.6, 1129.36, 1246.4, 1885.82 and 3173.54. This is procedurally incorrect. The corrected values are given above.
