A poster advertising a forthcoming exhibition of posters, leaflets and newspaper adverts from Ireland’s crucial EEC accession referendum in 1972. The exhibition is in The Culture Box, East Essex Street in Temple Bar. It runs from Saturday 16th to Friday 22nd November 2013. It looks very interesting.

The collection comes from long-time Campaigner against EU encroachment on Irish sovereignty Anthony Coughlan.
Material on exhibit includes stuff from both sides in the 1972 Debate
– Lamp-post posters
– Pamphlets
– Door leaflets
– Notices of Public Meetings
– Internal bulletins for the campaign groups
