Petition to the Constituencies Boundary Commission


This petition will be submitted to the above commission as part of a wider submission by The Anglo-Celt and Deputy Brendan Smith (FF) in a campaign to reunite all of County Cavan as part of the Cavan-Monaghan Constituency ahead of the next General Election.


Following the last report by the Commission, a large chunk of west Cavan went into a new Sligo-Leitrim-West Cavan-South Donegal constituency.


This campaign is supported by the relevant TDs in both constituencies affected – in Cavan-Monaghan Deputy Brendan Smith (FF), Minister Heather Humphreys (FG), Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin (SF) and Deputy Niamh Smyth (FF) and in, Sligo-Leitrim, Deputy Martin Kenny (SF), Deputy Marc MacSharry (FF), Deputy Tony McLoughlin (FG) and Deputy Eamon Scanlon (FF).


The REUNITE CAVAN campaign is also backed by the Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council Fergal Curtin (FF) on behalf of the local authority.
