Sheading of Garff

Garff (Manx: Garff) is one of the six sheadings in the Isle of Man. It is on the east of the island and consists of the parishes of Lonan and Maughold, the village of Laxey and the district of Onchan. Historically, Onchan was in the sheading of Middle.

It is also a House of Keys constituency (excluding Onchan). It was originally a three-seat constituency but this was reduced to two seats in 1893 and one seat in 1986. At present it is heavily under-represented by having only a single MHK.
