Kerry–Limerick West was a parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas from 1921 to 1923. The constituency elected 8 deputies (Teachtaí Dála, commonly known as TDs) to the Dáil, using the single transferable vote form of proportional representation (PR-STV).

History[edit]

The constituency was created under the Government of Ireland Act 1920 to elect members to the House of Commons of Southern Ireland and first used at the 1921 general election to return the members of the 2nd Dáil. It succeeded a combined set of Kerry and Limerick UK Parliament constituencies such as Kerry South which were used to elect the members of the 1st Dáil and earlier UK House of Commons members.

It was abolished under the Electoral Act 1923 and succeeded by the new Kerry constituency and the Limerick constituency, both of which were first used at the 1923 general election for the members of the 4th Dáil.

Boundaries[edit]

The constituency covered all of County Kerry and the western parts of County Limerick.
