Irish Election Literature

… what you maybe meant to keep…

From the 1977 Election a Fianna Fail ad -“The Coalition Shopping Basket” -“The Arabs put 12p on petrol- and the Coalition put 35p!” April 21, 2011


From the 1977 General Election campaign an ad from Fianna Fail about price rises since 1973 under the Fina Gael/Labour Coalition . Interesting to see the price rise in cigarettes and beer was less than amongst other items, butter, Tea, Potatoes and Fish Fingers.
We also get the nice line “The Arabs put 12p on petrol- and the Coalition put 35p!”
