Leaflet from Dick Roche -Fianna Fail- 1989 General Election Wicklow April 24, 2012

From the 1989 General Election a leaflet from Fianna Fail TD Dick Roche who was running in Wicklow. Roche polled 7,707 votes and was easily elected along with party colleague Joe Jacob.
The leaflet details achievements by the 1987 to 1989 Fianna Fail government as well as what else needed to be done. In that snap election Fianna Fail dropped four seats and ended up losing a traditional core value in entering a coalition government with the Progressive Democrats.

Dick Roche Newsletter -Fianna Fail -1989 General Election Wicklow June 28, 2010

From the 1989 General Election a newsletter from Fianna Fails Dick Roche running in Wicklow. Dick Roche won a seat.
Having been elected in 1987 the Haughey led government, despite support from Fine Gael in the guise of the Tallaght Strategy decided to go to the country for a bigger mandate.
Like today many of the problems dated back to when Fianna Fail had previously been in government, especially the policies of the 1977 to 1981 Fianna Fail Government.
Similar enough to today we get the blurb of problems being tackled although ‘the support and encouragement received from the Irish people‘ isn’t quite as available as it was then.



Dick Roche -Fianna Fail -Wicklow 1997 General Election March 12, 2010

From the 1997 General Election the dashing Fianna Fail candidate Dick Roche.
Amongst other things we learn that Dick was the ‘first Irish winner of United Nations Human Rights Fellowship, 1978’. It was Dicks lobbying that got a new sewage plant in Greystones.
Theres plenty more in the leaflet which appears to be tailored towards the Greystones area.
