Christmas week from the Irish Election Literature Blog… December 24, 2009Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
AK – and thanks as ever for all his work – has put together a selection for this week… some really good stuff here…
Paul Kane ‘Framed by a Supergrass’ -Anti Extradition Leaflet. Kane was one of the 1983 Maze escapees. Leaflet shows the way Fianna Fail spoke out of both sides of their mouth re the North in the 80s.
Benny McElwee of Sinn Fein poster with the ‘Smash Stormont’ slogan, from 1982 Stormont elections. Vote 1 McElwee and 2 Danny Morrison.
Dermot Tobin of The Workers Party 1989 Wicklow, includes DeRossas message to the electorate and the Workers Party Proposals which included a public jobs scheme.
Catherine Murphy Flyer from 2005 Kildare North by-election
and then …..
I put a comment on a previous post about this gem…
Last but not least a fascinating leaflet advertising ‘Berties Walkabout’ from 1993. If you thought these were impromtu affairs… think again.
A ballot paper etc from the 1973 Border Poll which was boycotted by the Nationalist population.
