    Default Pigeons, meet Cat! Ireland to lose 1 EU Seat

    With Croatia's accession Ireland will lose an EU seat by the looks of it.

    That leaves us with 14, -11 in the south.

    That is a really complicated number and means 4 constituencies won't work anymore.

    So what are the options?

    A greater Dublin and then ther rest split by a Dublin-Galway line?

    A North West Border north Midland, Dublin and the Rest?

    Im possible to say who benefits of course but even sitting MEPs will be looking to see how their base might need shifting.

    What is wrong with a single constituency?
