DescriptionThe constituency of Carlow–Kilkenny has been used at Irish elections since the election of the Second Dáil at the 1921 general election. Prior to Irish independence elections to the UK Parliament were held in three single seat constituencies, known as Carlow, Kilkenny North and Kilkenny South, and it was these three constituencies that elected members of the First Dáil. Carlow–Kilkenny did not exist during the period of 1937 to 1948 when it was replaced by the constituencies of Carlow–Kildare and Kilkenny.

The constituency spans the entire area of County Kilkenny and most of County Carlow (a small part of which is in the Wicklow constituency), taking in Kilkenny city, Carlow town, Urlingford, Tullow and Bagenalstown (Muine Bheag).
