Sean Kelly 1997 – Not the usual political portrait…. September 11, 2009


Normally candidates look happy , sometimes even serious as they try to project some form of gravitas from their pictures.  They may even wear a fancy outfit or shiny suit . The airbrush is common as when some candidates call to the door they look a different person to that in the poster or flyer pictures…..

Not so Sean Kelly who stood as an Independent in Dublin South Central in the 1997 General Election. Sean, is not the height of fashion , looks more than grumpy and the dog doesn’t look thrilled to bits either.

He polled 125 votes.
