A lovely letter to electors from Labour TD for Kerry South Michael Moynihan saying that he wont be sending each voter “a voluminous amount of  election literature.” I think its from the 1987 General Election where Moynihan lost his seat. I may be biased but maybe the lack of election literature was a factor!
