In the 1937 General Election Frank Ryan stood in Dublin South whilst recuperating from injuries sustained in the Spanish Civil War.
An Appeal for votes and ‘subscriptions’ was put in the paper. Which led to a letter from a Fianna Fail Doctor and a lovely reply from Peadar O’Donnell.
Frank Ryan polled 875 votes in the election.
(Oh and would anyone happen to know the names of the 2 Republican Congress Councillors elected in the 1934 Local Elections?)
