Fianna Fail Advertising Hoarding at Ireland vs Hungary 1989 Lansdowne Road September 27, 2011

Saw this and was amused at the Fianna Fail ad at the side of the pitch.  The game was held 11 days prior to the 1989 European and General Elections.
Haven’t seen much political sponsorship at sporting events , the last time was possibly Sinn Fein sponsoring a Bohs game in I think 2004 or 2007. Anyone any other examples?

    Can’t be 100% sure but I think I was at Bob Dylan in the RDS that day.

    Mary Lou McDonald had an advert in the match programme for Ireland v Romania in 2004, that would have been for the 2004 Euro elections? This was the game Roy Keane made his international comeback, for the record Ireland won 1 nil, Matt Holland 😉
