Mary Davis Litir um Thogchán

The Litir um Thogchán from Independent Presidential candidate Mary Davis delivered to both voters in my house. Note too the QR code on the front, I don’t think Gay Mitchell, Martin McGuinness or Michael D Higgins used one of them.
Note the blurb about trying to send just one campaign leaflet to each house.
If I recall correctly , the last time this happened for me was the 1989 European Elections where Proinsias De Rossa sent a single leaflet addressed to the ‘family’ as opposed to each voter in the house.
