Tom Farrell (The Bullockstown Boy) ‘King of the Shannon’ -Independent -Ballymahon -Longford-1985 Local Elections July 21, 2013


From the 1985 Local Elections a charming flyer from Independent candidate Tom Farrell (The Bullockstown Boy) ‘King of the Shannon’ running in Ballymahon for a seat on Longford County Council. He polled 234 votes and failed to win a seat. I gather that he was an Fianna Fail man who ran as an Independent and was known locally as Tom Andy Farrell.
Many thanks to the sender.

From the 1997 General Election a leaflet from Independent Fianna Fail candidate Jackie Healy-Rae a Farmer, Publican and holder of 3 county championship hurling medals.
In this 1997 General Election, after failing to get a Fianna Fail nomination, despite many years of service to the party, Healy-Rae ran as an Independent and caused a shock as he was elected polling 7,220 votes. He subsequently was one of the four Independents that supported the 1997 to 2002 Fianna Fail government.
