From the 1938 General Election “Farm Prices must be kept at a Paying Level” from Fianna Fail. Fianna Fail stated that it was “the main task before the next Dail-not arbitration for Civil Servants or useless debates concerning events now past or any of the other futile things that Fine Gael is agitating about.”

From Fine Gael in 1938 – “Meath Wants No More Migrants!! “ October 18, 2011


From the 1938 General Election and Ad for Fine Gael Meath -Westmeath candidates Michael Sweeney, Patrick Giles and Charles Fagan. Fagan and Giles were elected. Some info on Giles.
The context of “Meath Wants No More Migrants!!” was the foundation of the Gaeltacht at Rathcairn and the influx of Irish Speakers from Connemara.

 

Wonderful 1938 Election Labour Party leaflet concerning Fianna Fails appeals for Unionist support October 9, 2011


From the 1938 General Election a fantastic anti Fianna Fail leaflet from the Labour Party. The Leaflet quotes from Padraig Pearse and Terrence MacSwiney and provides evidence that Fianna Fail is appealing for Unionist support.

“Fianna Fail was the first political party to voluntarily proclaim an English King as King of Ireland”

Not alone that but

“… It now advertises exclusively in “The Irish Times” …”

Labour won 13 seats in 1937 but only returned 9 seats in this 1938 General Election.
Many thanks to the sender.
