  1. AJL Says:

    C-K – Brophy was former Lab
    Dublin NC – Dillon was of the Young Ireland Party (anti-corruption)
    Dublin NW – Meagher was Ecology Party of Ireland
    Dublin SW – O’Reilly was an anti-Traveller candidate
    Louth – Was this O’Donnell the old AE candidate in 1977 – if so he’s probably dissident FF

    Again these are from my old records – I will defer to anyone with better knowledge locally

  2. Passer By Says:

    I see the Traveller candidate named as Ann Joyce, but she was named Nan after her mother Nan. Is Ann her official name, on her birth certificate, and Nan an informal name, or is Ann simply a spelling error?

    • In the election results I was using she was listed as Ann.

      • Passer By Says:

        God damn, what a fast reply! What took you so long?

        What results are you using – original printed election literature or a contemporary 1982 voting form, or the website (where they use “Ann” as well)? She is always known as Nan, which is why I felt the question was worth raising. So, may one inquire your source, please?

      • Would have used a variety of books (Nealons guide etc as well as and the Newspaper supplements from the time too which I still have!)
        Some have her as Nan, some as Ann.

    (“What took you so long?” was a joke because you responded to me in just three minutes. Don’t be offended.)
