Calling card from Aine Brady -Fianna Fail- Kildare North -2011 General Election January 29, 2011


Many thanks to the sender.
From the 2011 General Election, a card delivered in doors this week from Kildare North Fianna Fail TD Aine Brady. Her colleague Michael Fitzpatrick delivered a budget guide.
Seems to indicate that a lot of Fianna Fail candidates may have been waiting for the leadership to be sorted before getting campaign literature together.

ACRA letter regarding ‘Local Government Service Surcharge’ 1985 Local Elections November 9, 2009


Letter from ACRA to householders in the Dun Laoghaire area during the 1985 local elections campaign.
Already only Eight years after Domestic Rates had been abolished by the 1977 Jack Lynch government, Local authorities were looking for ways to supplement their income.
Fianna Fail opposed the Local Government Service surcharge, Labour were split and Fine Gael proposed it!
Tony O’Toole, who signed the leaflet is/was very active in the movement to abolishing ground rents.

I’m curious if the Philip Gillick listed is the same Philip Gillick who was Justice Floods Tipstaff?
It would be an interesting coincidence, especially considering who and what was being investigated.
