Irish Election Literature

… what you maybe meant to keep…

From 1982…”The Role of Officers in Sinn Féin: Republican lecture series” October 23, 2016

From 1982…”The Role of Officers in Sinn Féin” published by The Sinn Féin Education Department as part of the ‘Republican lecture series’. It’s quite interesting as the roles are explained but also within the context of “The Troubles”. I’ve scanned it and uploaded it in pdf.
Many thanks to the sender

Found a few more 1982 snow pics.Not as spectacular as the  first one  I posted.

In the first picture the snow covers the road and is at wall height.

The second one is I gather taken later during the thaw and you can see the snow cleared to make the door accessible. Its of St Marks school in Tallaght.

The third one shows how cars were snowed in too.
