… what you maybe meant to keep…

From 1973 a leaflet for Labour Dun Laoghaire Candidates Barry Desmond and Flor O’Mahony September 12, 2011

From the 1973 General Election a leaflet for Labour candidates Barry Desmond and Flor O’Mahony who were running in Dun Laoghaire. Desmond polled 5,768 votes and was elected whilst O’Mahony polled 2,072 votes and failed to win a seat.
Many thanks to the sender



Flor O’Mahony, Jane Dillon Byrne -Labour- Dun Laoghaire 1989 January 8, 2010

With Barry Desmond off to Europe, Labours chances of retaining the seat were slim, especially with the Workers Partys Eamon Gilmore on the up. A two candidate strategy made it harder and despite the stature of both candidates the seat was lost to The Workers Party.
Jane Dillon Byrne is still a councillor and the brief pen pic below only gives brief highlights of her career (another leaflet from 1985 gives a better detail) .She was also a swimming teacher…
