First off a request I got in yesterday from a Student doing a thesis on Michael O’Riordan. Would anyone have any election material from Michael O’Riordan , especially his election campaigns of 1946, 1951, 1955 and 1961. Or indeed be able to point me in any direction where they or any other material from him might be found…… (I’ve already sent him the CLR Archive Link for O’Riordan)

From The April 1936 edition of “The Labour Monthly” (a magazine associated with The Communist Party of Great Britain) an article reflecting on the 20th Anniversary of the Easter Rising written by Pat Devine.

From the 1969 General Election a leaflet from Labour Party Dublin County South Candidates Sean Fitzpatrick, Tom O’Brien and Donal O’Sullivan.
