Leaflet from Orla Guerin , Bernie Malone -Labour -1994 European Elections Dublin June 5, 2012

From the 1994 European Elections Campaign a leaflet for Labour Party Dublin candidates Orla Guerin and Bernie Malone.
The sitting MEP Bernie Malone, who had been co-opted to replace Barry Desmond, had been selected at the Selection convention and was none too pleased when then RTE journalist Orla Guerin was added to the ticket. The addition, supposedly at Dick Springs request, caused friction within the party and between the candidates.. It was one of the most memorable campaigns for rivalry between candidates…. All sorts of rumours went around at the time.
In the end Malone held on to her seat and it was Guerin, despite polling well, who lost out.
Orla Guerin joined the BBC in 1995 and has worked there since. Bernie Malone lost her seat in 1999 after Proinsias de Rossa was added to the Labour ticket and De Rossa was easily elected.
