Many thanks to the sender.

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.
