The November 1976 Edition of The Sligo Star produced by The Sligo CYM and supporters. It’s interesting in that it has a broader coverage of culture and local issues than many Left Wing papers. Many thanks to the sender

Frank Dobbs flyer from 1987 in Sligo Leitrim.  The text is as corny as you’ll get.
What’s unusual is that four years later in the 1991 Local elections Frank Dobbs stood for Declan Brees Sligo-Leitrim Independent Socialist Organisation.
Some conversion….
