“Will You Vote For Fianna Fail?” “Bankruptcy of.. Farmers and Indian Meal Porridge” -Cumann na nGaedhael 1932 May 26, 2013


From the 1932 General Election an ad attacking Fianna Fail from Cumann na nGaedhael. Lots of scaremongering.  Were Fianna Fail to get in “It would not need your vote to keep it in power. The Gun Bullies would Do that”. Theres more along those lines as well as The  “Bankruptcy of Thousands of Farmers and Indian Meal Porridge all year”

This is quite interesting in that it illustrates the protectionist part of the 1932 Fianna Fail manifesto that in part (along with the refusal to pay Land Annuities) led to the economic war with Britain from 1932 to 1938.
I wonder did Joe Dolan ever see it given the “More and More and More and More and More ….”

From 1932 “Cosgrave Works while De Valera swears -Vote Cumann na nGaedhael” August 27, 2012


From the 1932 General Election a poster “Cosgrave Works while De Valera swears -Vote Cumann na nGaedhael”. Presumably the swear is a reference to the Oath.
