In the 1948 General Election, long serving Fianna Fail TD for Tipperary Andrew Fogarty lost his seat. A presentation was organised and subscriptions collected. This is a letter from Fianna Fail General Secretary Bill Quirke (info on him here) thanking the recipient for his donation of £5.  The letter also contained a list of subscribers with the amounts they donated. The names on the list of contributors includes Dan Breen, Sean Lemass, WJ Magner,  Harry Colley, Sean McEntee, Erskine Childers many more TDs and Senators , a number of clergy and a host of other individuals . Naturally many of the names are from Tipperary.
Many thanks to the sender
