Senator Jimmy Harte says the population of Donegal doesn’t justify two three-seat constituencies, and wants the Ballyshannon electoral area and its 8,000 inhabitants should be transferred to Leitrim.It will be like going back in time for the town – it was ‘in Leitrim’ from 1977 to 1981 when Donegal was a single five-seat constituency.Leitrim-based councillors and TDs and citizens also suggested that part of south Donegal could be added to a new constituency.  BALLYSHANNON TO BE ‘KICKED OUT OF DONEGAL’ IN CONSTITUENCY SHAKE-UP was last modified: January 13th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Ballyshannonjimmy hartelast_img read more
