From the 1987 General Election in Dublin South East. The fianna Fail candidates of Mary McAleese, Gerard Brady, Michael Donnelly and Eoin Ryan.
Gerard Brady won a seat. (result at electionsireland.org)
The profiles of all the candidates have items of interest.
For instance Mary McAleese was a member of the Roman Catholic Episcopal Delegation to the New Ireland Forum. Who remembers her now from her time on RTE Radio and Television. Eoin Ryan is a graduate of Kildalton Horticultural College.
That’s another brilliant find.
When Mary McAleese was going for the presidency was there not a row over the extent of her Fianna Fail Links? or something along those lines.
