2014 Local Elections
The 2014 Local Elections were held on Friday 23rd May, the same day as voting in the European Elections and two Dáil by elections (Dublin West and Longford Westmeath). Polling took place between 7am and 10pm.
The nomination period for Local Elections opened at 10am on Saturday 26 April and ended at 12 noon on Saturday 3 May. As this was a bank holiday weekend, candidates had until noon on Tuesday 6 May to withdraw their nominations.
Further information is available from the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government website.
The 2013 Local Electoral Area Boundary Committee Report proposed a radical revision of boundaries in line with the Government report Putting People First – Action Programme for Effective Local Government launched in October 2012. This abolished all Town and Borough councils, and merged Limerick City and County councils, Waterford City and County councils, and Tipperary North Riding and South Riding County councils. Many electoral areas have seen significant changes, and the average number of seats per area has increased.

Notice of Poll
Notices of Poll are now available for all local electoral areas, either on council websites or as PDFs when the Notices have been emailed to us. See the Notice of Poll link for each council below.
The lists of candidates in the familiar ElectionsIreland.org format for each area on this website will be updated over the next few days. Please be patient with us over this – it is a very time consuming job to check all the names against our database of candidates, try to ensure we don't confuse people with similar names and create new entries for first-time candidates.
Currently candidates are marked as 'outgoing' if they are existing County or Town councillors. We will try to make this more accurate to reflect co-options, change of area and type of councillor as time allows. A list of co-options and changes of party since 2009 is available here - this list isn't yet exhaustive.
