About Onchan (2016)
Onchan was first formed as a constituency in its own right in 1986, having previously been part of Middle. It is sandwiched between Douglas to the south and Garff to the north, and is bordered to the west by the parish of Braddan in the constituency of Middle. Onchan village is the Isle of Man's second largest centre of population, after Douglas. The boundary changes for 2016 mean the constituency consists of Ballachurry, Birch Hill, Hague, and part of Howstrake. Onchan is currently represented by three MHKs, namely Zac Hall, Peter Karran, and David Quirk. Mr Hall was elected at the 2011 general election, and Mr Quirk at the 2006 contest. Mr Karran has served the constituency since 1986.
