Constituency Review Submission from Richard Foran
Submission ID: S28
Kerry, National Issues
A major downside to large Constituency’s is that sections of the Country especially on the western seaboard with declining population cannot have proper representation in Dail Eireann.
A perfect example of this is South Kerry. The political parties will always choose candidates from areas with a large population to ensure election. As a result areas like South Kerry cannot elect a T.D and have representation in Dail Eireann.
Large Constituency’s must be divided to ensure that all the people of Ireland have fair and equal representation.
