This talk examines the progressive changes in voter franchise and local government representation from the Local Government Act in 1898, through the Irish Revolution, to the abolition of Rural District Councils in 1925. The independence movement used these elections to harness support but also used the local bodies as an integral part of the challenging of British rule in Ireland.
