Irish Election Literature

… what you maybe meant to keep…

Lisa Connell “Out, Proud & Independent” from the 2009 LE- South West Inner City July 7, 2010


From the 2009 Local Elections a wonderful poster and Leaflet for Independent LGBT candidate Lisa Connell.
The “Out, Proud & Independent” slogan is excellent.
Lisa Connell polled 229 votes.
In my youth I recall Liz Noonan running on a Gay Rights platform in Dublin South East with posters pasted all around Donnybrook as I passed on the bus. She stood in 1981 and in the two 1982 elections. Lisa Connell continued that tradition.
Mamam Poulet has a fine post on Single Issue LGBT Candidates in Irish Elections.

I’d love to get any material for any of the candidates listed in Maman Poulets article. (Don Donnelly, Tonie Walsh,Michael Foley and Liz Noonan)
I’ve a 1997 John Goodwillie leaflet posted already.
