More anti Gerry Adams material from Louth…
The sender notes
a poster printed by John V. Lennon one of Cork’s
most notorious eccentrics, who has a long history in political life
and public speaking, He was involved in campaigning for Michael D.
Higgins in the early days, both having gone to UCG. You are also
probably familiar with Bernie Murphy getting elected to Cork City
Council, which Lennon orchestrated. This week Lennon is going to Louth
to speak against Gerry Adams running for election, he is going to put
these posters up around the place as part of it. He spoke against
Adams before in UCC Philosophical Society in 1984 after which Adams
refused to shake his hand, which was a novel change. Lennon won the
debate in question by over 300 votes to 5.
