Many thanks to the sender who notes….
“a copy of an election poster for Ite Ni Chionnaith who ran for The Irish Republican Socialist Party in Dublin South West in the June 10th, 1976 by-election.”
She polled 287 votes in a contest won by Labours Brendan Halligan. The by-election was caused by the death of Fianna Fail TD Noel Lemass. Lemass was son of Sean Lemass, husband of Eileen Lemass and of course brother in law of Charles J Haughey.

First off many thanks to the sender. I’m afraid, despite my best efforts, that its quite difficult to read in parts.
Its issue 2 of the IRSPs Hunger Strike Bulletin produced during the ‘First Hunger strike’ in 1980. The Hunger Strike began on October 27th 1980. Among the Seven initial Hunger Strikers was INLA member John Nixon.
This issue contains a letter from John Nixon and a diary of events for the period between the 26th of October and the 4th of November.
Issue one is posted HERE

Was sent (many thanks) these pages of a 2002 Edition of The Starry Plough, the newspaper of the IRSP. It was a special edition marking the 25th Anniversary of the murder of Seamus Costello.
In this post are The cover of the paper and a very interesting page which cover many things including a profile of Seamus Costello, the foundation of the IRSP and his ultimate murder, which is uploaded in PDF HERE .
(Should anyone have any of Costellos election material. I’d love to post it)
The sender notes too that “Costello was the first (and so far only) leader of an Irish political party to be murdered.”
