From the 1985 Local Elections a personal letter from Liam Kavanagh Minister for the Environment to the Voters of Bray. December 21, 2010


From the 1985 Local Elections a personal letter from Liam Kavanagh Minister for the Environment to the Voters of Bray.
In it he mentions money being provided for amongst other projects the Bray/Shankill By-Pass. Reading it reminded me of those horrendous tailbacks at Shankill and Little Bray.
For the Council the Labour candidates were John Byrne, Barbara Hyland (who later stood as an Independent) and Nancy Mahony running for Wicklow County Council and Paddy Mooney and Siobhan Turner joining them on the ticket for the elections to Bray UDC.
Many thanks to the Sender.

 

Leaflet from Barbara Hyland- NLJAG /Independent -1989 General Election November 8, 2009


Barbara Hyland has stood multiple times in multiple elections, most notably in 1987 where she along with four other candidates stood for the National Legal Justice Action Group. NLJAG were campaigning against the Law Society, or rather the staus of the Law society as the ‘only avenue of complaint’ if you had ‘Suffered at the hands of the legal profession’.
They wanted an independent ombudsman.
She stood in 13 constituencies top vote of 217 in her home of Wicklow, lowest 33 in Dublin North West.

This is from 1989 where she stood in just Kerry South and Wicklow. She stood again in 1992, 1997 and 2002.  She has various newspaper clips in the leaflet which may give you a better idea as to her motives.

She had stood previously in the Local Elections for Labour.
