    Default Map of electoral districts online?

    I'm trying to find a map showing the areas in each constituency broken down into electoral districts. I know OSI do one but they charge money for that!

    Specifically i'm trying to find one for Dún Laoghaire and Dublin south

    Any ideas?

    tried to get electronic ones for work and it was expensive. It's pretty much impossible unless you're willing to shell out. I'd suggest the County Councils (try and copy the planning registry or something - it may be broken down), and if not then try the Map Library in Trinity College. They are available but you'd swear they were the state secrets.
    We need to radically change every system that has enabled the wholesale destruction of the Irish landscape, rural and urban. There is no time for incremental step by step measures. The systems have failed utterly and the only hope for a real recovery requires the rule book to be torn up completely.

    have a look at this. Together with the street guide you may be able to get a decent picture. It's usually major roads that form the borders

    Thats what I found when I went hunting. Its not terribly useful unfortunatly! I can't believe this sort of information isn't available freely!

    Try the DEHLG site for the last electoral areas report, should have the SDCC and DLR area maps. Actually I think the DLR council site should have a better map too. If not PM me.

    I heard electoral boundaries are copyrighted by OSI. That is why they are hard to get.
