City councilDublin City

Dublin North-Central was a parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas, from 1948 to 2016. The method of election was the single transferable vote form of proportional representation (PR-STV).

History and boundaries

It varied between 3 and 4 seats from its creation in 1948. It was located on the north side of Dublin city.[1]

The Electoral (Amendment) Act 2009 defined the constituency as:[1]

"In the city of Dublin the electoral divisions of:
Beaumont B, Beaumont C, Beaumont D, Beaumont E, Beaumont F, Clontarf East A, Clontarf East B, Clontarf East C, Clontarf East D, Clontarf East E, Clontarf West A, Clontarf West B, Clontarf West C, Clontarf West D, Clontarf West E, Drumcondra South A, Edenmore, Grace Park, Harmonstown A, Harmonstown B, Kilmore A, Kilmore B, Kilmore C, Kilmore D."

It was subsumed into the new Dublin Bay North constituency at the 2016 general election.

The constituency's most high-profile TD was Charles Haughey, who won the first seat in the constituency at every election from 1981 until his retirement in 1992, when his son Seán Haughey won a seat but did not top the poll.
