Ivor Callelys guide to Budget 2011… with nice FF style logo… and more January 7, 2011

The fact that Ivor is sending this leaflet out leads me to think he’ll be standing again.
Ivor Calellys guide to Budget 2011.

First off there is the tagline under Ivors name

The heartwarming appeal from Ivor at the end of the leaflet
We must remain vigilant as we move forward learning from past mistakes and not settling for less than our full potential. We must look beyond our current difficulties and as resilient people we can and we will get through this difficulty.
I am asking people to be positive, to have hope and confidence.

And then the sneaky FF style logo!



From 2003…Ivor Calellys “History Of Leinster House” Leaflet September 22, 2010

From 2003…Ivor Calellys “History Of Leinster House” Leaflet. It was provided for tours of Leinster House that I presume Ivor arranged.
Aside from the welcome from Ivor the visitor will be starstruck as “The Taoiseach, Mr. Bertie Ahern T.D. on behalf of the government and all the members of the Irish House of Parliament extends a cead mile failte to all visitors to this
historical democratic Parliament.

Happened upon this 1999 press release from Ivor Callely where he urges a ‘Tattooing and piercing info campaign’

Given his current difficulties his press release sounds even more bizarre. There must have been an uproar at the time on Joe Duffy about Tatoos and Piercings.

Ivor Callely 2009 Newsletter includes a section “How to cope through Difficulties’ August 5, 2010

From the 2009 local elections Ivor Callelys newsletter. Its a promo for himself and his son Ronan Callely who was running for Dublin City Council in the Clontarf ward. Callely junior wasn’t elected.
The contents of the newsletter , given recent revelations, is somewhat ironic.
There are many individuals and families that need help now” writes Ivor before continuing “I want to send a clear message, no one is alone in their personal difficulties, help and support is out there.
On Savings and Investments Ivor suggests ‘you seek professional advice before you make any decision.’ Difficulties with Mortgages are also covered.

There are tips from Callely junior on ‘Looking for a job‘, There is also mentions of “Money Advice and Budgeting Service (MABS)”
the final call is one for Ivor to organise ‘House Meetings‘, ‘The impact of the current difficulties is real and the answer to our difficulties is not beyond our reach.’
