From the 2004 Local Elections a leaflet for Fine Gael candidate Pat Crimmins who was running in the Donaghmede ward for a seat on Dublin City Council. Despite polling a respectable 1,645 he missed out on a seat. In 2007 he was co-opted onto the Council and held his seat in 2009.
There’s also a nice picture of him in a Dubs jersey with a pair of Roller Blades around his neck… to illustrate his campaigning for an ice rink in Donaghmede !
Many thanks to the sender.




Brian Byrne -Independent -Donaghmede 2009 LE August 22, 2010

From the 2009 Local Elections a leaflet for Former Fianna Fail councillor Brian Byrne running as an Independent in Donaghmede.
Byrne resigned from Fianna Fail claiming that the cutbacks in the Budget showed Fianna Fail had “lost touch with ordinary people and have failed to listen to their concerns”.
Cutbacks in spending programmes announced in the budget have resulted in pain and distress being inflicted on the elderly and less well off in our society,”
Byrne polled well with 1,202 votes but failed to get in.

From the 2009 Local Elections a leaflet for successful Fine Gael candidate Pat Crimmins running in Donaghmede.
Little or nothing about the candidate (which from looking at some 2009 and 2007 Fine Gael material is less than unusual) other than a photo.
It does concentrate on waste, unemployment and job creation. Nothing in it about the Banking crisis.

Killian Forde-Donaghmede Sinn Fein Special Bulletin 2004 on Donaghmede Probation Office March 2, 2010

From April 2004 in the run up to the 2004 local and European Elections, a Donaghmede Sinn Fein special Bulletin on Donaghmede Probation Office.
Then Sinn Fein candidate Killian Forde writes of the true costs of the project and the link between prominent Fianna Fail donors and the location of the office.
Other concerns include the fact that other sites weren’t inspected, the cost overruns, waste of public money and only a part of the offices capacity being used.
Is the office fully occupied now?
