Benny Cooney- Independent- Athlone TC 2009 December 4, 2009

George Allen, Pauline Coughlan, Vincent Dooley, Brendan McFadden, Dick O’Brien -Fine Gael -Athlone 1991 LE November 27, 2009

PJ Coghill, Sean Fallon, George Ledwith, Kieran Molloy, Egbert Moran, Cieran Temple -Fianna Fail- Athlone LEA 1991 September 19, 2009

From the 1991 Local Elections in Athlone. Fianna Fail candidates PJ Coghill, Sean Fallon, George Ledwith, Kieran Molloy, Egbert Moran and Cieran Temple. A strange layout of the candidates in this leaflet. Its unusual that there are no names beside the candidates pictures.I’d hazard there haven’t been too many ‘Egberts’ put before the electorate either.
