Meath was a parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas from 1923 to 1937 and from 1948 to 2007. The method of election was the single transferable vote form of proportional representation (PR-STV).

History and boundaries[edit]

The constituency was first created under the Electoral Act 1923 for the 1923 general election, electing 3 deputies (Teachtaí Dála, commonly known as TDs). It was abolished in 1937. It was recreated under the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1947 for the 1948 general election, again electing 3 deputies. It gained a fourth seat in 1977 and a fifth seat in 1981.

For the 2007 general election, it was abolished, being divided into the two new 3 seat constituencies of Meath East and Meath West.

The constituency spanned the entire area of County Meath in Leinster, taking in Navan, Trim and Ashbourne. It also included small parts of County Kildare.[1]
