Lovely to see League of Ireland and Political Ephemera come together with a Dundalk FC Fixture guide from Dundalk based Fine Gael Councillor John McGahon. Hopefully we’ll see a Shamrock Rovers Fixture guide from a politician soon!
Many thanks to the sender

A Sports Update and wall chart for Euro 2016 from Fine Gael TD for Dublin North West , Noel Rock. The first of hopefully many Irish Political leaflets related to Euro 2016.
Many thanks to the sender.



Rugby World Cup Fixture Guide from Neil Richmond -Fine Gael- Dublin Rathdown September 2, 2015

A Rugby World Cup Fixture Guide with details of all (not just Irelands) matches in the Competition from Cllr Neale Richmond. On the back of the guide, the rugby playing Councillor Richmond is pictured playing as well as with Irish legend Paul O’Connell. It also mentions the Irish bid for the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
His website.
Many thanks to the sender.

Kilkenny Senior and Intermediate Hurling Fixture list from Joe Malone -Fianna Fail -Kilkenny City West May 7, 2014

A handy fixture guide for the Kilkenny Senior and Intermediate Hurling Championships from Joe Malone who is running for Fianna Fail in Kilkenny City West. I gather there is some local controversy as he has left his running mates names off all his leaflets to date (although does include the European Candidates).
Many thanks to the sender.



“Group Fixtures & Venues 2002 World Cup Korea Japan” -Brendan Brady -Fine Gael- 2002 General Election Dublin North West May 30, 2011

Candidates or TDs will often send a card with useful phone numbers (sometimes with a magnet so it can be stuck on the fridge), a guide to local services, Budget guides, guides to Benefits and so on all in the hope that you will hold on to them.
World Cups and other sporting occasions also lead to a flurry of leaflets with fixture guides and the like. This one is a fixture guide for the 2002 World Cup produced by Fine Gael Dublin North west candidate Brendan Brady. The 2002 General Election was held on the 17th of May and Brady polled 2,082 votes and missed out on a seat.

John Staffords (and Jack Charltons) World Cup USA 94 Fixture Guide-Fianna Fail-1994 European Elections July 11, 2010

From the 1994 European Elections a USA 94 fixture Guide from Fianna Fail candidate John Stafford. He failed to win a seat.
A strange leaflet where he endorses himself from Jack Charlton.
