Constituency Review Submission from David Conway
Submission ID: S48
Cork North-West, Cork North-Central, Cork South-Central
As part of the current boundary review, can Ballincollig Cork be included within one of the two Cork city constituencies, Cork South Central or Cork North Central?
Ballincollig is currently in the constituency of Cork North West, a constituency covering a large part of rural county Cork including the towns of Macroom and Mallow.
Ballincollig was previously part of Cork North Central, an urban constituency where the interests of the constituents are more closely aligned with the issues and needs of present day Ballincollig.
As you may be aware, Ballincollig is now under the auspices of Cork city council and within the boundaries of Cork city, reflecting the fact that the population of Ballincollig is more suburban than rural in its interests.
