Roscommon-South Leitrim is a parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas. The constituency was created for the 2007 general election. The constituency is served by three Teachtaí Dála (TDs). The method of election is the Single Transferable Vote. The constituency was created by the Electoral (Amendment) Act 2005, which gave effect to the 2004 "Constituency Commission Report on Dáil Constituencies".

Boundaries

Its territory includes all of County Roscommon and the southern portion of County Leitrim (the area to the east and south of Lough Allen) in the province of Connacht. This territory was previously represented through the constituencies of Longford-Roscommon and Sligo-Leitrim, both of which were abolished in 2007. The new arrangement eliminated the breach of the Leinster-Connacht provincial boundary caused by the Longford-Roscommon constituency.
