Notes

The STV electoral system make this type of simplified table of election results disputable due to the preferential ballot. Here, only first preference votes are reported.  

The NUTS structure and electoral units:   
The data is reported according to the 2004 Constituencies Revision of the electoral districts. These do not correspond to the NUTS-structure.  


2004 Constituencies Revision Summary

The Constituency Commission Report on Dáil Constituencies 2004 proposed some major changes. As a result five new constituencies was created: Longford Westmeath, Meath East, Meath West, Roscommon-South Leitrim and Sligo-North Leitrim. These replaced the four existing constituencies of Longford Roscommon, Meath, Sligo Leitrim and Westmeath. Most significantly these changes removed the provincial boundary breach between Leinster and Connaught of the old Longford Roscommon constituency.

The number of seats was reduced in two constituencies: Cork North Central (from 5 to 4) and Dublin North Central (from 4 to 3). Two three seater constituencies gained an extra seat: Dublin Mid West (newly created in the 1998 revision) and Kildare North.

There were further boundary changes to eleven constituencies outside Dublin: Clare, Cork North West, Cork South Central, Cork South West, Donegal North East, Donegal South West, Kerry North, Kerry South, Kildare South, Limerick East and Limerick West. All of the twelve Dublin constituencies were also revised apart from Dublin South East and Dun Laoighaire.

These changes left the total number of Dáil seats unchanged both in the whole country (166) and in Dublin (47), but increase the number of constituencies from 42 to 43.



NOTE: one of the seats in Cavan Monaghan was automatically returned to the Speaker (Rory O'Hanlon of FF). Counted as an independent seat.
