Fermanagh and South Tyrone is one of the tightest battlegrounds in Northern Ireland between unionism and nationalism.
Since it was created in 1950 it has been represented by six separate nationalist MPs and five unionist MPs.
Since the 2010 general election, unionist parties have formed a pact in the constituency, either in favour of an independent unionist candidate or the UUP’s Tom Elliott.
In 2010 Michelle Gildernew of Sinn Féin won by just four votes, only to lose by 530 votes to Mr Elliott in 2015. Two years later, Mrs Gildernew took the seat back again with a majority of 875.
In 1981 the seat was won by IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands, who was elected on 9 April while on hunger strike in the Maze Prison. He died less than a month later.
Covering a relatively large geographic area, Fermanagh and South Tyrone incorporates both Enniskillen –the largest town in Fermanagh – and the Tyrone market town of Dungannon.
It is a largely rural constituency and shares a long border with the Republic of Ireland.
As of 1 November its electorate is 76,140.
Michelle Gildernew has taken the final seat in Northern Ireland.
Now 17 of the 18 constituencies in Northern Ireland have been declared. We are just waiting on the result from Fermanagh and South Tyrone - and that may be some time.
So far, 15 constituencies have declared their winners. The SDLP and UUP are yet to win a seat. There are three more constituencies to go.
They are - Fermanagh and South Tyrone; Newry and Armagh; and West Tyrone.
Here are the final turnout figures for Northern Ireland - up across the board on the 2015 numbers.
