‘One of The Best ‘ Eamon Gilmore -Democratic Left- Dun Laoghaire 1992 GE November 3, 2010


From the 1992 General Election a leaflet from the then Democratic Left TD Eamon Gilmore running in Dun Laoghaire.
Some lovely slogans in ‘One of The Best‘ and ‘Make Sure Vote Gilmore‘.
We get details of how much Gilmore speaks in the Dail. The Leaflet also mentions that Gilmore ‘began the organisation of the first Peace Train‘.
(I had my doubts but here he is at the First Peace Train.)

We learn too that “He helped lead the campaign to reform his old party, and was one of the first to leave to form Democratic Left” (Should read to form New Agenda which became Democratic Left).
Gilmore was elected easily having polled 7,045 votes.
