Clare is a parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas. The constituency elects 4 deputies (Teachtaí Dála, commonly known as TDs). The method of election is the single transferable vote form of proportional representation (PR-STV).

History and boundaries[edit]

The constituency's boundaries have varied widely since its formation in 1921, but the boundaries in use for the 2011 general election span almost the entire area of the county, taking in Ennis, Shannon, Kilrush, Newmarket-on-Fergus and Ennistymon. A small part of the south-east of the county around Ballyglass is in the Limerick City constituency.[1]

Clare is historically a Fianna Fáil stronghold. The party founder, Taoiseach and President Éamon de Valera served the constituency for 38 years, from 1921 to 1959. His granddaughter, Síle de Valera, retired as TD for the area at the 2007 general election. Other notable former deputies include President Patrick Hillery, the long-serving Ceann Comhairle (chairman of the Dáil) Patrick Hogan and Moosajee Bhamjee who was the first Muslim TD.

The Electoral (Amendment) Act 2009 defines the constituency as:

"The county of Clare, except the part thereof which is comprised in the constituency of Limerick City."
