From the 1985 Local Elections a leaflet from Bernie Murphy who caused a shock when elected to Cork City Council polling 757 votes.


Famous Cork Independent – Cllr Bernie Murphy-Cork NC and Cork SC 1987 September 9, 2009

1987 General election and Bernie Murphy, having been elected to the council two years previous to much ado, stands for the Dail. As you’ll read he was seen as a Joke candidate and his election caused uproar.The only manifesto I’ve ever bought.
Quite amusing and may bring back memories of the man to many Corkonians.
