From the 1925 Seanad Election a Letter from Jeremiah McVeagh. According to his Wikipedia entry…“He was first elected as the Irish Parliamentary Party MP for the South Down constituency at the 19 February 1902 by-election,and was again re-elected at the 1906, January 1910, December 1910 and 1918 general elections, and served until 1922 as member of the Nationalist Party.
In 1913 he presented the Jeremiah MacVeagh Cup to the Down County GAA Board. The Cup has been presented to the winners of the annual Down Senior Hurling Championship ever since.”
The 1925 Seanad Election was the only time that a portion of the Seanad was elected by General Franchise. 19 of the 60 seats were elected in 1925 with 76 candidates going forward , details here.
The leaflet turned up in the Redemptorist Provincial Archive in Dublin, which has a Facebook Page which is well worth a look.
Many thanks for sending this (and other material on)
