Left Archive: Irish Manifestos Archive September 28, 2020

Posted by leftarchivist in Irish Left Online Document Archive.

This week the Left Archive podcast discusses the Irish Manifesto Archive with Green Party Cllr. Michael Pidgeon. It’s a very comprehensive archive of local, European and General election manifestos which has material from most political groups in the state and in many instances dating back decades.

Michael has donated documents to the ILA and vice versa) and here is a joint post with the Left Archive and the Manifesto Archive from 2008 on the Green Party Election Manifesto 1989 – written by Michael.

The Archive can be viewed by Party, or by Election, and there’s also a selection of Programmes for Government.

One particularly useful feature is the use of photographs of leaders – and it is intriguing to see the numbers of campaigns some leaders have been in situ as compared with others.

Documents of particular interest from a left perspective include the ULA manifesto from 2011 which does not appear to have taken a printed format.

If you want to get in touch with materials you can contact Michael on twitter here or at the following email
