An in-depth review of changes to general election boundaries in the Republic of Ireland, with specific reference to the most recent changes in 2012, as published in the latest issue of the Irish Political Studies journal.
Taylor & Francis Online :: All Changed, Changed Utterly? Irish General Election Boundary Amendments and the 2012 Constituency Commission Report – Irish Political Studies – Volume 29, Issue 2.
Fascinating. Is it possible to extrapolate trends in voting shares across parties in the 40 new constituencies by attributing results from ’09 and ’14 local elections and ’11 General Election in respective LEAs and constituencies that reside within new boundaries? Has this research been done?
Of course. Posts relating in which the 2011 General Election results and the 2014 Local Elections results are translated into the new 2012 Constituency Commission boundaries can be found elsewhere on this website. No analysis completed for 2009 figures, though, as I do not see the point of such an analysis.
