To the Electoral Commission:
Firstly, can I wish you all the best in the establishment of the Electoral Commission recently.
Please find two brief comments on the Limerick City Constituency to the Constituency Review.
- The Limerick City Constituency should remain, at a minimum, a four-seater constituency
- In 2014 Limerick City and County were merged into a single local authority. As part of this merger a Metropolitan Council area was established. This area contains the East, West and North Wards of Limerick City and meets as 1 unit. The Limerick City Constituency, as a minimum should include the entirety of the Metropolitan area of Limerick within it. Therefore, I propose all areas which constitute the Metropolitan area of Limerick Council should be included in one Dáil constituency.
Thank you for your time and best wishes with this important work.
