thank you for the opportunity to make a submission in relation to the Constituency review process that is currently underway

 With regards to the Carlow Kilkenny Constituency I would like to make representation to seek to ensure that the Constituency of the Kilkenny section of the Constituency remains as is, especially in regards to South Kilkenny, namely the Piltown Municipal District.

 I wish to seek that Kilkenny’s boundary stays in tact and that south Kilkenny is protected in its entirety and continues as Kilkenny and is not subsumed into an adjoining Constituency.

As a further  – may I please seek to ensure that the Kilkenny Local Authority in relation to Kilkenny County Council  Local Elections remain as is in line with Dail Eireann constituency.

In another matter, 

may I please seek that a return to the Piltown Electoral Area of the area that was annexed to the Thomastown Callan Municipal Area in the last review take place as the natural boundary of the river would be the most logical and practical divide. Currently the parish of Tullogher, Kilkenny is divided between the Piltown Municipal District and the Thomastown Callan Municipal District and such a practice seems of little basis.

In conclusion, thank you for taking the time to consider my submission .

With regards,

Cllr. Fidelis Doherty
