Galway East is a parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas. The constituency elects 3 deputies (Teachtaí Dála, commonly known as TDs).

The constituency was created for the 1937 general election, under the Electoral when the former Galway constituency was split into Galway East and Galway West. It was abolished in 1948 and recreated in 1961. It was abolished again in 1969 and recreated in its current form in 1977.

I represent Galway East as your elected Representative.  I am continuously working on your behalf in Dáil Éireann.  Should you require any assistance or wish to organise a meeting, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Is mise le meas,


Anne Rabbitte TD
