From 1988 a pamphlet from Fine Gael written by Gay Mitchell outlining various Policy proposals for Dublin. Makes interesting reading now as some of the proposals have happened , others modified and others like an airport at the IFSC haven’t happened at all.
Many thanks to the sender.



Paul Kane – ‘Framed by a Supergrass’ -Irish Anti Extradition Committee 1988 December 21, 2009

Paul Kane was one of the 38 prisoners that escaped the Maze Prision in 1983.Extradition was a big issue in the Republic all throughout the troubles. Despite the quotes from Charles Haughey and Gerry Collins on the back of the leaflet, Paul Kane was extradited in 1989. The Quotes from Haughey and Collins also illustrate how throughout the Troubles Fianna Fails policies shifted to populist Republican ones most often when in opposition.
Others mentioned as awaiting extradition in the leaflet include Dermote Finucance, brother of the late Pat Finucane and former MP and election agent for Bobby Sands, Owen Carron.
