History and boundariesEdit

The constituency was created under the terms of the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1980,[1] taking in parts of the former Cork City and Cork Mid constituencies. It was first used at the 1981 general election as a 5-seat constituency. It was reduced to 4 seats for the 2007 general election.

It is made up of the electoral areas of Cork City Council north of the River Lee, namely Cork North Central, Cork North East and Cork North West, and much of the Blarney electoral area of Cork County Council.[2] At the 2016 general election, the Bishopstown, Gillabbey, Glasheen and Mardyke areas of Cork city were moved from the Cork South-Central constituency, while the townlands of Dromore, Kilcullen, Kilshannig and Mountrivers were moved to the Cork North-West constituency.[3]
