This Week At The Irish Election Literature Blog September 14, 2012Posted by irishelectionliterature in Irish Election Literature Blog.
Starting off this week with Clare Dalys first leaflet since she resigned from the Socialist Party. Issued under the ULA banner, it carries amongst other things, a statement about her ‘Fresh Start’ and a statement of support from Joan Collins TD.
As an aside The SWP have an article up on their site “What We Say: Clare Daly and Socialist Party”
On then to a small bit of Republican history and “A felon’s cap’s the noblest crown. An Irish head can wear.” A 1956 Mid Ulster By-Election leaflet from Sinn Fein candidate Tom Mitchell. Mitchell had won the previous two elections but had been disqualified from assuming office because he was a convicted felon.
Then from 1992 a leaflet from Labours Breeda Moynihan Cronin “The Dirty Dozen -McCreevy cuts Social Welfare 12 times since April”
and finally “Be Part Of The Comeback … Join Fianna Fail Today” from Ogra Fianna Fail .
