Constituency Shake Up - 8 TDs to go

Constituency report: Dáil loses 8 TDs in radical boundary shake-up

Full Report here

A few boundary changes and merging of large split county constituencies like Tipperary, Donegal and Kerry. I find this encouraging - it may help to reduce the number of JHR and Lowery types in the Dail.

There will be wailing in Mayo, Ballinrobe is now in Galway west and part of Galway East in in Roscommom/Leitrim.

Cork East (four seats) and Cork South-West (three seats) remain unchanged.

Meath and Louth constituencies are unchanged

Lots of changes in Dublin

I hope they get onto the County Councils next, a lot of these could and should be abolished - no need for them and a waste of money
