… what you maybe meant to keep…

Feb 1982-“The Coalition has taken away the right of YOUR child to enter this school at 4 years of age.Fianna Fail will Put This Right” January 7, 2011


An intriguing Fianna Fail ad from the February 1982 General Election with the message…
The Coalition has taken away the right of YOUR child to enter this school at 4 years of age. Fianna Fail will Put This Right
I’m not sure as to the background and what the coalition proposals about School going age were.
The ad asks for a vote for the Fianna Fail candidates in Galway West, Frank Fahey, Maire Geoghegan Quinn, Bobby Molloy, Mark Killilea and Nicholas O’Connor.
Taken from the wonderful Galway Advertiser site.

    Funnily enough, my mother had to move heaven and earth to get me into Junior Infants later that year, notwithstanding new rules on age of entry. It turns out FF were on my side all along!
