Donegal set to lose a TD as commission recommends constituency merger

There could be major political upheaval on the way in Donegal, with the two Dail constituencies set to be merged and the total number of TDs cut from six to five.

Nationally, it's reported the number of TDs in the Dail will be cut by 8 under new recommendations to be published next month by the Constituency Commission.

The Irish Times reports that the commission will recommend major changes which will see seats being lost in Dublin, Munster and Connaght-Ulster.
