Was sent these images by a kind soul.
The top and most striking one is from the 1979 European Elections where she polled 33,969 votes on an Anti H-Block platform.
The second poster is from the 1969 Mid Ulster by Election where as a Unity candidate she won the by-election. She was returned to Westminster again in 1970 but lost her seat in 1974.
