Irish Election Literature

… what you maybe meant to keep…

From 1989 “Why we think you should vote for Michael D.” – Mick Lally, Emmet Bergin and Noel Browne June 20, 2011


From the 1989 General Election in Galway West an Ad for Michael D Higgins with endorsements from Mick Lally, Emmet Bergin and Noel Browne, “Why we think you should vote for Michael D.” A big thing then to be endorsed by two actors from Glenroe. In Ireland it is unusual to see public figures backing Dail candidates.
Michael D held on to his seat polling 7,727 votes.
In 1987 he had a similar ad with endorsements from Mary Coughlan, Mick Lally and Noel Browne.
