Betty Reeves -Green Alliance -1985 Local Elections Blackrock June 22, 2010

From the 1985 local elections leaflet for Green candidate the late Betty Reeves. Betty Reeves was a founder member of the Green Party and was elected to the council in 1991.
It is a generic leaflet where the candidates name is stamped on it.



Betty Reeves, Michael Dunphy -Green Party- Blackrock 1991 LE December 12, 2009

In the 1991 local elections in the Blackrock Ward, the late Betty Reeves was elected to the council having polled 491 First preferences, well short of the 1,623 quota. She served one term. As written on the leaflet she was a founder member of the Green Party. Her niece is married to John Gormley. I think the Newtown Park/ Carysfort bus committee was to do with the lack of service and the state of the buses used, on the 6 and 6A routes.
In 1991 Greens were still thought of as outside the mainstream, yet here we had a candidate Michael Dunphy who ran his own business, was an active member of the GAA and so on.
Amongst the issues covered are ‘The Owen Rua proposals for a huge infill and a 630 unit luxury housing estate out in the bay” and opposition to ‘Dalkey gun club’….
