|Former Dáil Éireann
|County/City council||County Clare
Clare–Galway South was a parliamentary constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas from 1969 to 1977. The constituency elected 3 deputies (Teachtaí Dála, commonly known in English as TDs) to the Dáil, using the single transferable vote form of proportional representation (PR-STV).
Clare–Galway South was abolished under the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1974, with effect from the 1977 general election. The areas in County Clare were incorporated into the existing Clare constituency, while the Galway territories were divided between the two new constituencies of Galway West and Galway East.
The Clare part of the constituency had been included since 1923 in the Clare constituency. However, it was only a small area of County Clare (a sparsely-populated part of the mountainous area in the centre of the county), and it would have not have been anomalous to have simply called it "Galway South". Clare–Galway South also included a small part of County Roscommon.
Its territory did not change in the eight years of its existence, and was defined in the 1969 Act as being:

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
