1986 North Antrim By-Election leaflet from Ian Paisley -DUP February 10, 2017


From the 1986 North Antrim By-Election a leaflet from Ian Paisley of the DUP. Paisley won 97.4% of the vote!

It was one of the fifteen 1986 Northern Ireland by-elections held on 23 January 1986, to fill vacancies in the Parliament of the United Kingdom caused by the resignation in December 1985 of all sitting Unionist Members of Parliament (MPs). The MPs, from the Ulster Unionist Party, Democratic Unionist Party and Ulster Popular Unionist Party, did this to highlight their opposition to the Anglo-Irish Agreement. Each of their parties agreed not to contest seats previously held by the others, and each outgoing MP stood for re-election.

“Save Ulster with the Ulster Democratic Unionist Association” Leaflet ..from the early 80s? November 30, 2011


Got this recently , a leaflet from the ‘Ulster Democratic Unionist Association Co. Londonderry’, outlining their aims and objectives. I think its from the early 80s but can’t be sure. I can’t find anything online about them. I presume that they were linked to the Democratic Unionist Party.
If anyone has any details of the group I’d love to know.

 

DUP newspaper “Protestant Telegraph” from September 1981 June 22, 2011


A September 1981 copy of Protestant Telegraph a newspaper of the Democratic Unionist Party. The cover story deals with the murder of two RUC members, inside we have articles praising the use of plastic bullets, the link between the IRA and European Communists, a short history of The DUP. Amongst other items there are articles on Sunday trading and articles critical of goings on in other (Non Free Presbyterian) Protestant Faiths.
Apologies for not being in a position to make a *.pdf of the paper.
