HistoryEdit

The constituency was created for the 1937 general election when the Dublin North constituency was divided into Dublin North-West and Dublin North-East. It was abolished in 1977 as a result of the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1974 when it was largely replaced by the Dublin Artane constituency before being recreated in 1981.[1] It was subsumed into the new Dublin Bay North constituency at the 2016 general election.

BoundariesEdit

Lying within the suburbs to the north east of Dublin, the constituency was almost entirely urbanised and socially quite diverse. Dublin North-East encompassed the Howth electoral area in the Fingal County Council area (including Howth, Sutton, Baldoyle), along with the Darndale and some of the Priorswood parts of the Artane electoral area, and the Donaghmede and Raheny parts of the Donaghmede electoral area, in the Dublin City Council area.[2]

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

"In the city of Dublin the electoral divisions of:
Ayrfield, Grange A, Grange B, Grange C, Grange D, Grange E, Priorswood A, Priorswood B, Priorswood C, Priorswood D, Priorswood E, Raheny-Foxfield, Raheny-Greendale, Raheny-St. Assam;
and, in the county of Fingal, the electoral divisions of:
Baldoyle, Balgriffin, Howth, Portmarnock North, Portmarnock South, Sutton;
and that part of the electoral division of Turnapin situated north of a line drawn along the Northern Cross Route (M50), passing in a clockwise direction around and excluding roundabout No. 3 at the junction of the Northern Cross Route (M50) with the M1 motorway."
