Following consideration of submissions relevant to the terms of reference, and of the outcomes of such consultation as may be carried out by the Committee, the Committee will make such recommendations with respect to the administrative boundary of County Meath/County Louth and any consequent recommendations that they consider to be necessary in the interests of effective and convenient local government in due course. The Committee will prepare and furnish to the Minister a report in writing of that review and its recommendations.

The Terms of Reference, for the Boundary Committee and maps, showing the existing boundary and the Committee’s area of interest are on display for public inspection at the offices of Meath County Council and Louth County Council.
