Dear Members of the Electoral Commission, 

I am aware your terms of reference specify that you do not have to adhere to the boundary between the four Dublin Local Authorities. However, I believe this detrimentally impacts those pockets of people who find themselves in one local authority area, but represented by a TD who predominantly represents an area serviced by a different local authority. Examples of this can be found along the Dublin City Council and Fingal County Council border. I believe the Electoral Commission should look to enhance and streamline political representation. Adhering to the Local Authority boundaries would enable this when revising or devising new constituencies. 

Yours Sincerely,

Cllr. Aoibhinn Tormey

Howth Malahide LEA

Fingal County Council
