Wonderful 1938 Election Labour Party leaflet concerning Fianna Fails appeals for Unionist support October 9, 2011


From the 1938 General Election a fantastic anti Fianna Fail leaflet from the Labour Party. The Leaflet quotes from Padraig Pearse and Terrence MacSwiney and provides evidence that Fianna Fail is appealing for Unionist support.

“Fianna Fail was the first political party to voluntarily proclaim an English King as King of Ireland”

Not alone that but

“… It now advertises exclusively in “The Irish Times” …”

Labour won 13 seats in 1937 but only returned 9 seats in this 1938 General Election.
Many thanks to the sender.
