EP constituency Dublin

Dublin South–Central is a parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas. The constituency elects 5 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]

It is located near the centre of Dublin city, and also contains part of South Dublin. The constituency comprises Harold's Cross west, Drimnagh, Walkinstown, Crumlin, Inchicore, Ballyfermot, Kimmage and Terenure west.[2]

Under the Electoral (Amendment) Act 2005, which took effect at the 2007 general election, the constituency boundary was extended to the north side of the River Liffey, taking in Islandbridge.[3]

The Electoral (Amendment) Act 2009 defines the constituency as:[2]

"In the city of Dublin the electoral divisions of:
Carna, Chapelizod, Cherry-Orchard A, Cherry-Orchard C, Crumlin A, Crumlin B, Crumlin C, Crumlin D, Crumlin E, Crumlin F, Decies, Drumfinn, Inchicore A, Inchicore B, Kilmainham A, Kilmainham B, Kilmainham C, Kimmage A, Kimmage B, Kimmage C, Kimmage D, Kimmage E, Kylemore, Merchants Quay A, Merchants Quay B, Merchants Quay C, Merchants Quay D, Merchants Quay E, Merchants Quay F, Terenure A, Terenure B, Terenure C, Terenure D, Ushers A, Ushers B, Ushers C, Ushers D, Ushers E, Ushers F, Walkinstown A, Walkinstown B, Walkinstown C;
and that part of the electoral division of Phoenix Park situated south of a line drawn along Chapelizod Road, Conyngham Road and Parkgate Street;
and, in the county of South Dublin, the electoral divisions of:
Templeogue-Kimmage Manor, Terenure-Cherryfield, Terenure-Greentrees;
and those parts of the electoral divisions of Clondalkin-Monastery, Clondalkin-Ballymount and Tallaght-Kilnamanagh situated east of a line drawn along the M50 Western Parkway."

Constituency profile[edit]

The constituency comprises Ballyfermot, Bluebell, Crumlin, Drimnagh, Dolphin's Barn, the Liberties, Chapelizod, Walkinstown and parts of Terenure on the fringes. The largest employers in the area are the Guinness Brewery and St. James's Hospital.[4] The constituency is regarded as being one of the country's most left wing with four out of the five TDs from centre-left or left-wing parties.[5] Another observation is that both Labour party TD's elected in 2011 had been members of other left wing parties with Eric Byrne a former member of the Workers' Party of Ireland and Democratic Left, and Michael Conaghan a previous candidate for Jim Kemmy's Democratic Socialist Party.
