Over the course of the campaign I’ll be appearing on RTEs Drivetime Show with pieces about Election Leaflets.

Having been interviewed in studio last week… The first little slot recorded with my full collection of material was broadcast last Friday….

Amongst the leaflets mentioned were This and This


Leaflet for Fianna Fail candidates Tullamore Town Council and Offaly County Council -2009 Local Elections December 7, 2010

From the 2009 Local Elections a leaflet for the Fianna Fail candidates for Tullamore Town Council complete with lovely pic of Brian Cowen. Sinead Dooley (Brian Cowens personal assistant), Declan Harvey, Tony McCormack and Paddy Rowland were all elected whilst Shane Murray failed to get in.
Also on the leaflet voters are urged to vote for Taoiseachs brother Barry Cowen as well as Sinead Dooley and Danny Owens for Offaly County Council. All three were elected.



Manifesto for Michael Gleeson – South Kerry Independent Alliance (SKIA) -2009 Local Elections October 25, 2010

From the 2009 Local Elections the Manifesto for Michael Gleeson of The South Kerry Independent Alliance (SKIA). Gleeson was running for both Kerry County Council and Killarney County Council and was elected to both.
Environment, Housing, Roads, Health and Education are amongst the areas covered here. Gleesons personal message is worh reading and includes the following lines
Ethical behaviour must be central to all actions and decisions by those who hold elected office and by those appointed to positions of trust. Any deviation from the highest standards betrays the trust of the electorate and corrupts society.”
