From the 1985 election for Greystones Town Commission a Letter to voters from Labour candidates Joe Sweeney, Mallie Jacobsen and Shay Monaghan.
They write that…
“The day is long gone when the “Wool can be pulled” over the Electorates eyes, with (we will do this and we will do that) if elected.”
Aslo that the local Labour TD and Minister Liam Kavanagh has “…shown his interest in our Town, by the many projects now in progress and those in the pipeline..”
I’m not too sure which of the candidates were elected.
