… what you maybe meant to keep…

A rather unusual spoilt vote …. “… Ctulhu shall rise from the sunken city of R’yLeh and Simply devour his opponents” November 15, 2012

A vote for Ctulhu with the text  “Irrelevant, Ctulhu shall rise from the sunken city of R’yLeh and Simply devour his opponents” from the Lisgoold/Leamlara Community Council Election 2012.
I reckon (after a bit of searching) that the voter was a fan of the writer H. P. Lovecraft
Many Thanks to the sender.

From hidden hobby to this years Junior Cert History exam…… June 13, 2012

Filed under: Elections — irishelectionliterature @ 9:18 pm

An eagle eyed reader spotted this… from the 2012 Junior Cert History Higher Level Paper… this website is used as a source.
I’ve been on the TV, on the radio ,in the paper and the site has supplied material for various books and magazines, been archived by the National Library and so on … but to feature on the Junior Cert is a different level altogether!!
(To think that It was only 27 years after starting collecting that I ‘came out’ with my hobby!)

 

From 1979 “Ireland Awaits Pope John Paul II- A Pastoral Letter from the Archbishops and Bishops of Ireland” June 6, 2012

Not a political leaflet but something of Irish interest that I found at home recently. From the booklet for the visit of Pope John Paul II to Ireland in 1979,”Ireland Awaits Pope John Paul II- A Pastoral Letter from the Archbishops and Bishops of Ireland”.
The booklet contained all texts for the various masses that the Pope was to celebrate as well as other things too. I’m sure it will be appearing elsewhere in due course.

Irish Election Literature

The Democratic Left were opposed to Water charges, Water Tax or Water Rates. They wanted to put pressure on other councillors to oppose them too.
Looking at the previous years vote thats shown, some Fine Gael and Fianna Fail voted against the charges.
The Government were seen to be bringing in these extra taxes whilst at the same time having the Tax Amnesty.
In 1985 the Councils in Dublin, following the election of councillors such as The Democratic Lefts Eamon Gilmore…….” took a bit of phrasing considering Gilmore was elected for The Workers Party.

Ireland in 1893

From 1893 a list of premises on Dublin’s Grafton Street.
There are some fantastically descriptive entries
10 Mitchell & Son, confectioners to Her Majesty, Prince of Wales, Prince Edward of Saxe-Weimar, and the Lord Lieutenant, refreshment and dining rooms, 98l

Then there are words no longer in common use such as peruke and portmanteau
11 Perry, Geo. & Co. (limited) trunk and portmanteau makers,
22 Laird, James, hairdresser, patent peruke maker, and perfumer

Items such as sealskin jackets
62 Joyce, Thomas furrier,importer and manufacturer of sealskin jackets and mantle warehouse

Then what business names do I recognize….
Hodges Figgis & Co are there as are James J Fox , Tobacco and cigar merchant.
Switzer & Co limited occupy numbers 88 and 88 1/2 as well as 91,92 and 93.

The Street has a good number of ‘ pharmaceutical chemists, druggists’ and some time, ‘oil and colour merchants’

Here’s an excerpt:

London Olympic Stadium holds 80,000 people. This blog was viewed about 260,000 times in 2011. If it were competing at London Olympic Stadium, it would take about 3 sold-out events for that many people to see it.
