Leaflet from Matt Merrigan -Labour – 1970 Dublin South West Bye-Election September 1, 2020
From the 1970 Dublin South West By-Election a leaflet from Matt Merrigan running for Labour. The By-election came about due to the death of Labour TD Sean Dunne. The leaflet contains a profile of Matt Merrigan, a message from John O’Connell (Labour TD for Dublin South West) , a message from Brendan Corish as well as an endorsement from all the Dublin based Labour TD’s.
Merrigan polled 5,004 votes losing out narrowly to Seán Sherwin of Fianna Fáil. Sean Dunnes widow Cora Dunne also stood in the by-election and this hampered Merrigans chances. Incidentally Sherwin subsequently joined Aontacht Éireann and of course Merrigan was expelled from The Labour Party in 1977 and subsequently was a founder member of The Socialist Labour Party.
