Dublin Artane (Dáil Éireann constituency)
|Former Dáil Éireann
|County/City council||Dublin City|
Dublin Artane was a short-lived parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas from 1977 to 1981. The constituency elected 3 deputies (Teachtaí Dála, commonly known as TDs) to the Dáil, using the single transferable vote form of proportional representation (PR-STV).
The constituency was created under the terms of the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1974, largely replacing the former Dublin North-East constituency, as part of the redistribution of constituencies which attempted to secure the re-election of the outgoing Fine Gael–Labour Party government. It was only used for the 1977 general election. The constituency was abolished in 1981 with much of it going into an expanded Dublin North-Central constituency. There were 15 electoral areas in Dublin Artane; 11 went to Dublin North-Central for the 1981 general election, with two going to Dublin North-East and two to Dublin North-West.
It covered the north eastern parts of Dublin city, including the Artane area together with parts of Clontarf, Drumcondra and Santry. It consisted of the following wards of the county borough of Dublin: Artane A, Artane B, Artane C, Artane D, Artane E, Artane F, Artane G, Artane H, Clontarf East E, Clontarf West A, Clontarf West B, Drumcondra North A, Drumcondra North B, Drumcondra North C, Santry B.
