1982 Seanad Administrative Panel Leaflet from Brendan McGahon -Fine Gael November 13, 2012

From the 1982 Seanad Election, held after the February 1982 General Election, a leaflet for Fine Gael candidate Brendan McGahon, who was running for a seat on the Administrative Panel. McGahon narrowly missed out on a seat but did win a seat a few months later in the November 1982 General Election. The sometimes outspoken TD held his Louth seat until his retirement in 2002. He is one of the few TDs that played League of Ireland football, as he did with Dundalk.
Many thanks to the sender.
