Stage 2: Of Deeny's 6158 votes, 2440 transferred to Byrne and 469 to McMenamin, thus 2909 (47.2%) to the SDLP; 1575 went to McElduff and 233 to McLahon, thus 1808 (29.4%) to SF; 322 went to Hussey and 204 to Wilson, thus 526 (8.5%) to the UUP; 249 (4.0%) went to Alexander (Alliance); 160 went to Buchanan and 68 to Reaney, thus 227 (3.7%) to the DUP; and 19 (0.3%) to Reid (PUP). (NB that Deeny's transfers to the SDLP, SF and the DUP very much favoured the Omagh-based candidates rather than the Strabane-based ones. For the UUP, both Hussey and Wilson live in Omagh though Hussey is a councillor for Strabane.)

Stage 4: Of Doherty's 6019 votes, 2944 went to McElduff and 1990 to McMahon, thus 4934 (82.0%) to the other SF candidates; 295 went to Byrne and 100 to McMenamin, thus 395 (6.6%) to the SDLP; 14 (0.2%) went to Hussey (UUP); and 3 (0.05%) to Reaney (DUP) with 670 (11.1%) non-transferable. (NB that Dohety's suplus was only 57; if there had been less than 319 non-transferable votes, and more then 5700 transferable, the fractional value of each vote would have been less than 0.01 and they would have been lost.)
