I've done an analysis of what the criteria mentioned in "Putting People First" would translate into if applied to the current Tipperary Local Electoral Areas (North and South)...
For a start there would be 33 seats....
The LEAS themselves would on the basis of Census 2011 be entitled to the following numbers of seats....
Clearly a fair bit of amalgamation will have to take place?
Maybe Newport-Nenagh, Templemore-Thurles.... in the south things look more complicated....
