This Week At The Irish Election Literature Blog December 23, 2011

Posted by irishelectionliterature in Irish Election Literature Blog.

Starting off with a 1949 booklet from The Anti Partition of Ireland League for the visit of Eamon De Valera to Birmingham

Then a much quoted one from Alice Glenn who passed away this week..
A Woman voting for Divorce is like a Turkey voting for Christmas’

Then a leaflet on “Keeping warm this winter” from Labours Ciaran Lynch that he wont be sending around this year given the cut in Fuel Allowance.

From 1972 “No to EEC” from the ITGWU

And finally the most viewed post from last year.. “Vote Ming” posters from the 90’s

Ah, Alice Glenn. Now that’s an historic one. I’m puzzled why Ming would be the one that was most popular.

He got an awful lot of media attention in the run up to the election and I suppose the posters indicate how much he has changed since then. There’s also comments by him about his relationship with former FF TD Frank Fahy who was his landlord.

I guess that’s true, though he’s keeping true in some ways to his former image!
