The main objects of this paper are to show that local government in Northern Ireland needs to be reorganised, and to suggest some possible reforms. I begin by noting the chief landmarks in the evolution of Irish local government, and I then summarise salient changes since Northern Ireland was established. Against this background we shall, I think, be able to form a judgment about the sort of reforms that are desirable and practicable.
