From the 1989 General Election “A voice that won’t be silenced” a leaflet from Wexford Labour candidate Brendan Howlin. Howlin topped the poll with 9,253 votes and held on to the seat he first won two years previously in 1987.
Many thanks to Wexford Labour Youth for allowing me to use the image. Their Facebook page has some other old Wexford Election Ephemera posted and is well worth a look.

From 1989 ‘Your Choice is Stark.’ “Fianna Fail: Stable Government” “Coalitions: Multi Party Chaos” June 14, 2013

Some Anti Coalition Fianna Fail ads from the 1989 General Election which are of particular interest as Fianna Fail went into coalition with The Progressive Democrats after that election. It was of course to be a “Temporary Little Arrangement” but it didn’t work out that way.

From the 1989 General Election a leaflet for then Workers Party councillor Pat Rabbitte. The leaflet attacks the local TDs Sean Walsh and Chris Flood as well as Progressive Democrat TD Mary Harney. It also contains an appeal for Labour voters to transfer to The Workers’ Party and for Workers’ Party voters to transfer to Labour.
There is also a piece from WP Councillor Don Tipping.
In this 1989 General Election Rabbitte polled 7,166 votes and took a Dail seat for the first time, a seat he has held onto ever since.
There are also quotes from various magazines and newspapers on how good Rabbitte is!
Many thanks to the sender.
