Cork City South-East was a parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas from 1969 to 1977. The constituency elected 3 deputies (Teachtaí Dála, commonly known in English as TDs) to the Dáil, using the single transferable vote form of proportional representation (PR-STV).

History[edit]

The constituency was created under the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1969 for the 1969 general election to Dáil Éireann.[1] The old Cork Borough constituency was divided into the new constituencies of Cork City North-West and Cork City South-East. It was abolished under the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1974, when the Cork City North West and Cork City South East constituencies were replaced by the new constituency of Cork City.

Boundaries[edit]

The constituency comprised the southern part of Cork city and suburbs.[1]
