A quick shift away from the UK election stuff to an ASTI Ballot paper for Proposed Public Service Agreement (Croke Park Deal).
Nothing much too it, other than an awful lot of people never get to see Union ballot papers.
The ASTI document which outlines the reasons for recommending a rejection of the deal is here.



Euro 2004- Seamus Kirk mock GAA Programme. September 15, 2009

6th of June 2004 outside Croke Park… Westmeath are playing Dublin and Kildare play Wexford. Seamus Kirk and his team give out mock programmes. The Kildare and Westmeath lineups are listed as well as a message from Seamus in the middle, with a play on a slogan used by the Bank Of Ireland in its GAA themed ads.

Seamus uses the leaflet to copy an article from the Sunday Independent which tells the reader of his political career, his triumph over adversity and his GAA pedigree both on and off the field. You would do well to have something more tailored to your potential audience.

It’s very clever too as it covers a team from both matches and may well be looked at for the afternoon. Given that Westmeath beat Dublin that day (on their way to their first ever Leinster title), it may well have been held on to by a few Westmeath fans. Sport is theme used by many politicians to try to get the voter interested. (more on that another day).

You may also notice that the leaflet is printed by BCR press. (On the List of TDs expenses at    BCR  contribute over €10,000 to Fianna Fail Meath TDs  Noel Dempsey and Johnny Brady).
