Seamus Gill , Mary McGroarty, Bernard McGuinness -Fine Gael -Buncrana 1991 LE March 7, 2010


From the 1991 Local Elections in the Buncrana LEA, Fine Gael candidates Seamus Gill , Mary McGroarty and Bernard McGuinness. Their concerns echo many of the concerns of today.
Bernard McGuinness stood in Donegal North East in 1981, 1992 and 2002 for Fine Gael but without winning a seat.

 

Jim Ferry (Eddie Fullerton replacement)- Sinn Fein Buncrana 1991 September 19, 2009


This is poignant in that Jim Ferry replaced the Late Eddie Fullerton on the Sinn Fein ticket as Eddie Fullerton was murdered during the campaign. Jim Ferry himself passed away only recently.

The leaflet had the standard Sinn Fein 91 manifesto in the middle with a profile of Jim Ferry on the front and a message regarding Eddie Fullerton on the back.

Also another leaflet with reference to policy and that Ferry had been requested to run by the Fullerton family.
