‘One man and his dog’ -Eamon Gilmore -Democratic Left -1997 GE Dun Laoghaire. September 8, 2010


One of my favourite Eamon Gilmore Leaflets. This one is from the 1997 General election when the then Minister of State for the Marine was running for the Democratic Left.
The casual picture of him walking the dog on the beach (Killiney beach?) to him purposefully strolling around the new ferry terminal in Dun Laoghaire.
There is also small pictures of him doing activities such as fishing and meeting people like Neil Kinnock.
The ‘NIREX dump’ refered to was a proposed underground nuclear waste dump near Sellafield.

    Interesting to see Gilmore meeting with Owens Wiwa, brother of Ken Saro Wiwa. He is not making much noise about Shell in Ireland…

    Labour support for Shell to Sea when Gilmore was Natural Resources spokesman? Anyone?

    A case of a cause far away is safer is support.
