Irish Election Literature

… what you maybe meant to keep…

Marie ‘The Shamrock’ Murphy -Fianna Fail -Kanturk 2004 Local Elections September 14, 2010


From the 2004 Local Elections a leaflet for Fianna Fail candidate Marie “The Shamrock” Murphy running in Kanturk. She was elected although lost her seat in 2009.
Many thanks to the sender who notes…
The name ‘Shamrock’ comes from a pub in the village of Kiskeam in North Cork, which I think her husband owned at one point. Her husband John B had been a councillor but due to ill health resigned and Marie took the seat on the council.
