“Lousers!” -Wonderful poster from William Norton Labour Party -1926 Dublin County By Election April 16, 2012


From the 1926 Dublin County By-Election a wonderful poster for former Tainiste and Labour Party Leader William Norton. The poster attacks a statement made by Professor Michael Tierney TD (Later President of UCD) speaking at a rally in support of Thomas Healy (the government candidate) where he said that
“..it was not a question of Unemployment, the trouble was the Lousers (meaning the Unemployed Workers) would not work.”
William Norton was elected.
Many thanks to the sender.
