1954 General Election flyer for Joseph Pilkington -Independent Republican Labour Candidate, Workers Unemployed, Small Farmer and Old IRA -Sligo Leitrim June 15, 2013


From the 1954 General Election in Sligo/Leitrim a flyer for Joseph Pilkington an Independent Republican Labour Candidate, Workers Unemployed, Small Farmer and Old IRA candidate. He polled 2,710 votes and failed to win a seat.
As far as I know Pilkington was a Sligo Town based Councillor. He was elected to Sligo County Council and Sligo Corporation in 1950 as a Labour candidate and died in 1955. I don’t know why he didn’t stand for Labour here in 1954.
Many thanks to the sender.
