Created from County Kerry

South Kerry was a UK Parliament constituency in Ireland, returning one Member of Parliament between 1885 and 1922.

Prior to the 1885 general election, the area was part of the Kerry constituency. Following the Anglo-Irish Treaty and the formation of the Irish Free State in 1922, the area was no longer represented in the UK Parliament because it was no longer part of the United Kingdom. The successor constituency in the new Dáil Éireann was Kerry–Limerick West, first established under the Government of Ireland Act 1920 to elect members to the House of Commons of Southern Ireland in 1921.


This constituency comprised the southern part of County Kerry.
