From the 1970s a selection of images of Republican Clubs and Sinn Fein posters kindly sent to me by a donor.
An Anti EEC poster presumably from the 1973 Referendum (with the Slogan Fight your corner – Don’t Emigrate), a poster criticising The Cosgrave Government , a Republican Clubs poster and one also for the Freeing of all Political Prisoners.
This version of Sinn Fein / Republican Clubs was the precursor of Sinn Fein The Workers Party which became The Workers Party although I’m not 100% sure they all are.
The “Éire Nua” posters would be Provisional Sinn Féin (Kevin Street), the others (red, naturally) are Official Sinn Féin (Gardiner Place) – now the Workers’ Party.
Éire Nua was the Provos policy platform in the 1970s – basically it proposed that once the British were forced to leave Ireland that it would be turned into a federal republic with four semi-autonomous provinces and a national Dáil based in Athlone. The proposal was finally abandoned at the 1982 PSF Ard Fheis.
Thanks for that, I wasn’t sure if they were all OSF or not as I couldn’t read the address on the Eire Nua one.
