Elections

  • Constituency Commission Report 2017

    The CONSTITUENCY COMMISSION REPORT 2017 has just been published based on the results of the 2016 Census of Population Result

    A PDF of full report is available at: Constituency Commission Report 2017

    The constituencies of Cavan/Monaghan, Dublin Central and Kildare South will each gain one additional TD

    However  the constituencies of Laois and Offaly were merged and will lose one seat as a result.

    Other recommendations include: 

  • Seanad Election 2016 : Crèche, Retirement Home or an Upper House to be proud of ? Let the people decide

    As the  Seanad Election 2016 approaches, the question has to be asked ‘does party politics serve the people or the party’.  The fallout from the General Election 2016 has resulted in many high profile TDs losing their seats and the challenge for   political parties now is how to enhance the profile of those who lost so that they are ready for the next general election whenever that comes. The people of Ireland decided by way of a referendum to retain the Seanad in 2013.  However, I doubt that anyone voting in that referendum wanted the Seanad to continue as the old boy’s staging post that it has become since 1937.
