From the 2009 Dublin Central By-Election and the Local Elections of the same day where he was also standing a flyer from Fianna Fail candidate Maurice Ahern. Maurice Ahern is of course a brother of former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and notes that should you be unable to contact Maurice then you could always contact Bertie at “St Lukes”.

Maurice Ahern polled poorly in the by-election with just 3,483 votes which put him in fifth position. He also lost his council seat.

Regards from Bertie- Letter looking for support for the Brother Maurice Ahern -2009 Local Elections,Dublin Central By-Election May 11, 2010

From 2009 and Bertie Ahern writes to voters in Dublin Central asking for a vote for the Brother Maurice Ahern in both the By Election and the local elections.

Bertie as ever in Dublin Central writes ‘Dear Neighbour’ as opposed to ‘Dear Voter’.
I am writing to thank you for the kindness and encouragement that has been extended to me…”
The content is of course as personal as ever. The elections give Bertie ‘a great opportunity to meet local residents and to catch up with you news and views…
He then goes on to ask for a vote for Maurice Ahern in both the Local Elections and the by-election.
Maurice Ahern finished fifth in the by-election on just 12.26% of the vote and also failed to win a seat in the Local Elections.
