County constituency

Created: 1929
Abolished: 1972
Election Method: First past the post

North Londonderry was a county constituency comprising the southern part of County Londonderry. It was created in 1929, when the House of Commons (Method of Voting and Redistribution of Seats) Act (Northern Ireland) 1929 introduced first-past-the-post elections throughout Northern Ireland. It was created in 1929 as one of five single-member constituencies replacing the former five-member Londonderry constituency. The constituency survived unchanged, returning one member of Parliament until the Northern Ireland Parliament was prorogued in 1972 and formally abolished in 1973.[1]

The constituency was focussed on the towns of Coleraine, Limavady and Portstewart.[2]

The seat was always held by Ulster Unionist Party candidates, and was rarely contested.[3]
