Local government in Ireland

The structure and functions of local government in Ireland changed when the new Local Goverment Act 2001 became law in 2002. Before 2002, local government in Ireland was divided into the following layers:
29 county councils
5 county borough corporations
5 borough corporations
49 urban district councils
26 boards of town commissioners

This structure has now changed and local admininstration units are now named as follows:

County Councils - remain the same
Corporations no longer exist
Dublin, Cork, Galway, Waterford and Limerick are now known as City Councils
Drogheda, Wexford and Clonmel are now known as Borough Councils
Urban District Councils and Town Commisions are all the one and are now known as Town Councils

There are now:

29 County Councils
5 City Councils
5 Borough Councils
75 Town Councils
