Tom Doodle May 30, 2012

John B Keane passed on ten years ago today.
This is a photo of a rally held in Listowel for the election of ‘Tom Doodle’. Prior to the 1951 General Election John B Keane had set up a fictitious political party, the Independent Coulogeous Party, complete with a fictitious candidate, Tom Doodle, who appeared at a ‘Monster Rally’ in Listowel. The picture is from that rally.

It’s amazing how much of this sort of thing – the photo – survives, isn’t it?
