From the 2007 General Election a ShatterBall, one of many given out by Alan Shatter during the campaign. Aside from the balls he also gave out Shopping bags and of course he had the infamous Star Trek and X-Factor leaflets . It all worked as he regained his seat.
Many thanks to the sender.



The Leaflets that made a story in todays Irish Independent… June 16, 2011

One of the leaflets from the site made the Indo again today with a number of others mentioned too.
(the picture had the same fold line as the one I’ve posted here)
Needless to say no credit was given to the site.
The Star Trek Leaflet mentioned
The X-Factor Leaflet mentioned
The “Casual pose wearing jeans..” Leaflet mentioned.
And here he is in a 1987 leaflet


Alan Shatter Newsletter Jan/Feb 2011 February 3, 2011

From the 2011 General Election in Dublin South a Newsletter from Fine Gael TD Alan Shatter.
There are various themes including awards he’d won from the Mirror and Irish Independent but he also mentions that word ‘Change’…
Change is often a theme in Elections,never more so than at the minute. The PDs in 1987 were “For Real Change” , In 1982 Fine Gael wanted “Change for the Better“, it was a slogan they used in 2007 also. In 2007 Pat Rabbitte gave Labours “five Commitments for change“.
Here Shatter goes that bit further and mentions “Revolutionary democratic change“.



Mary Muldoon, Alan Shatter -Fine Gael -1991 Local Elections Rathfarnham April 10, 2010

Fine Gael candidates Alan Shatter and Mary Muldoon from the 1991 local Elections in the Rathfarnham LEA. Both Alan Shatter and Mary Muldoon were elected.
Traffic and Knocklyon School were amongst the issues mentioned. Anyone familiar with the area will remember the issues with Traffic especially later on when the M50 ended at Tallaght.


Alan Shatter- ‘His record speaks for itself’ -2007 GE Dublin South March 5, 2010

Another from the Alan Shatter stable of imaginative/ corny leaflets. This time from the 2007 General election campaign. The jacket slung over the shoulder and the silhouette of it in reverse on the back…..
The pink almost takes away from the serious issues he mentions.



‘Good morning to a Better Ireland’- Jim O’Leary -Fine Gael -2007 Dublin South February 2, 2010

As positive looking a leaflet as you’ll find. Fine Gael candidate Jim O’Leary from the 2007 General Election in Dublin South.
Despite it being mass produced, the smile on the candidate and the “P.S if your number 1 vote is committed, please give me your highest preference” make it almost personal.
