Jimmy Somers -Labour Party Newsletter – November 1983 Dublin Central By-election November 10, 2009

This was delivered during the 1983 Dublin Central by-election campaign. In tight times the Social Welfare Christmas Bonus was to be paid thanks to Labour Minister Barry Desmond. The voters weren’t thanking him as Somers finished fifth on the day behind the Fianna Fail, Fine Gael, Workers Party and Sinn Fein Candidates.
Jimmy Somers is a former President of SIPTU and was previously in the ITGWU. He was also a local to the area.
