Dear Sir or Madam,

I have lived in Castlepollard all my life – over eighty years. Since 2007 the people of North Westmeath have been asked to vote in general elections in the Meath-West constituency. We are not local fellows with people in Meath-West. We vote in local elections in Mullingar/Kinnegad, our children go to school in Mullingar and play sport in Westmeath.

I would hazard a guess that 40% of the electorate in Meath West would not be able to name the three sitting T.D.’s in this constituency. Put us back where we belong the Longford Westmeath constituency.

Yours faithfully,

Patrick Murray
