Cork North Central is a constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas.

The constituency was created under the terms of the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1980 [http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/1980/en/act/pub/0017/print.html] , taking in parts of the former Cork City and Mid Cork constituncies. It was first used in the 1981 General Election.
