K3: Corporation Boroughs



The Statute Law Revision Programme considers the instruments in this category to be suitable for revocation.


This category consists of orders dividing boroughs into wards. The instruments were made pursuant to the Cork Municipal Corporation Act 1853 (16 & 17 Vict.) c. x and the Limerick Act 1853 (16 & 17 Vict.) c. lxxii. These Acts remain in force.

The Statute Law Revision Programme consulted with the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage on the instruments in this category. The Department agreed that the instruments were suitable for revocation.
