Found this Nessa Childers leaflet from 2004s Local Elections and thought it worth posting…..
Nessa, daughter of former President Erskine Childers won a seat for the Green Party here. She later resigned the seat and bowed out of politics only to reappear as Labour candidate for Ireland East in the 2009 Euro elections.
In Ireland we often have people leaving parties going Independent or founding their own party/group, often they are welcomed back to the party which they had left.
Not too many elected representatives switch between the main parties, so as a collector I like the fact that I have both the Green and Labour leaflets for Nessa Childers….
‘We must grasp the opportunities offered by new technologies…‘ she writes in the Labour Leaflet
