This Week At Irish Election Literature April 15, 2016

Posted by irishelectionliterature in Uncategorized.

“Defend 1916, defend Irish history!’ a leaflet from The Irish Political Review Group

On then to the Seanad leaflets and three that caught my eye this week

Frances Black who is running for The Seanad on The Industrial & Commercial Panel.

and of course a leaflet and letter from Aodhán Ó Ríordáin also running on the The Industrial & Commercial Panel

Jerry Beades who is running in the NUI panel

Index of Seanad leaflets here

On that ‘Irish Political Review Group’ leaflet, I was looking recently at the Linenhall Library catalogue, and the sheer number of organisation names, publisher names etc. used by the wider BICO/AHS group and associates is impressive. Adding the above, there’s all of these:

British & Irish Communist Organisation
(Sometimes just “The Organisation”)
Workers Association
(Again, sometimes just “The Association”)
Institute for Representative Government in Northern Ireland
Athol Books
Aubane Historical Society
Belfast Historical and Educational Association
NorthWest Labour Publications
The Ingram Society
Irish Political Review Group

Quite a list, isn’t it?

Yeah, had to double check myself who exactly they were. It must have stuck in their craw too praising or even mildly agreeing with Sinn Fein.


2. Joe - April 15, 2016

Frances Black, independent? Do SF have anyone running for that panel?


Joe - April 15, 2016

Yes, Joe. SF have Pádraig MacLochlainn running on that panel according to the Adrian Kavanagh website. And they have also nominated Ciaran Staunton, independent, on that panel. MacLochlainn is an inside candidate and Black is an outside.
Strange things indeed, Seanad elections.

I must confess I was amused at the thought of AOR going around the country begging Councillors for their vote or a preference at least.
He hasn’t even tailored his letter for the recipients. So he’s sending the same letter to FF Cllrs in Cavan than he is to SF Cllrs in Cabra. He hadn’t even signed it himself either. Most candidates appear to be sending letters based on the party the recipient is in.
