“Put the right man back!”- Garret Fitzgerald led Fine Gael -November 1982 General Election May 19, 2011

From the November 1982 General Election. The generic Fine Gael leaflet. Pictured is the leader Garret Fitzgerald with the slogan “Put the right man back!”. There is a profile of Garret, however  Garret does not have a personal message to the electorate, just a series of points with his picture above them which is highly unusual.
