Paul Cullen19/05/2009Does anyone know how many seats there are in our ward in the local elections? Currently, there are three sitting councillors in the south-west inner city ward but someone said an extra seat has been added because of the growth in population locally. Is this true?

Michael O'Flanagan19/05/2009Yeah! John Gormley regigged the constituencies...... previous in the Dublin Sth Central Constituency....... 5 TDs......and 11 councillors........ 3 in Ballyfermot......... 3 in Inchicore/Liberties and 5 in Crumlin/Drimnagh/Terenure....... Gormley wanted to get rid of the 3 seaters to improve the chances of getting a Green Councillor elected....somewhere......anywhere.....thus three 4 seaters in Ballyfermot, Inchicore and Crumlin. Population had very little to do with it!
