Leaflet from Barry Desmond -Labour- November 1982 General Election -Dun Laoghaire April 17, 2012


From the November 1982 General Election a leaflet for Labour candidate in Dun Laoghaire Barry Desmond. Given the short length of time between the two elections in 1982 the leaflet is very similar to the February 1982 one with the same family picture and indeed picture of the candidate himself. The layout is also similar. The main difference being the picture of the trendy ‘youth’.
Barry Desmond was re elected polling 6,130 votes and was subsequently appointed Minister for Social Welfare and Minister for Health.
