At different periods it returned 4, 3 or 4 TDs. It comprised the administrative county of [[County Roscommon|Roscommon]]. *as a 3 seater from the [[Irish general election, 1981|1981 general election]] until its abolition at the [[Irish general election, 1992|1992 general election]] to be replaced by the 4-seat [[Longford–Roscommon (Dáil Éireann constituency)|Longford–Roscommon]] constituency.
