THE DÁIL IS to be reduced from 166 to 158 TDs under measures announced today by the Constituency Commission.
There were a raft of changes to constituencies around the country that will leave a number of TDs scrabbling for their seats – but the net effect is to leave the Dáil eight deputies smaller.
The eight-seat reduction will increase the average population per TD from roughly 27,500 to just under 29,000.
So what do you think? Do you agree with the cut to Dáil numbers?
