Local government reform – Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose?

Abstract

The perceived deficiencies in Ireland’s local government system have frequently been diagnosed, resulting in reports, White and Green Papers and action plans. This article reviews the main reform trajectories, paying particular attention to developments since 1971 and demonstrating that the reforms which did occur were affected by national and international developments. The form, functioning and financing of local government were recurrent themes in the reform documents, and these aspects are specifically examined. Political, administrative and decision-making structures are found to have been altered; the scope of existing functional programmes and the modes of implementation have changed noticeably; and, although the issue of local funding sources has been tackled, the centre’s financial hegemony has not been eliminated. Despite the insights of the reform documents, there is little evidence of a clear and consistent philosophy underpinning reform, so the cumulative changes represent a unique blend of innovation, incrementalism and entrenchment.

Abstract

With the election of a new Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, TD, in June 2017, a number of changes were made to government departments. A new Department of Rural and Community Development was established, taking functions from the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs (renamed the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht), and from the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government (renamed the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government). The employment brief was moved to the Department of Social Protection to create the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection. Finally, the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation was renamed the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation.
