Tim Cotter -Fianna Fail- Celbridge LEA- 1991 local Elections February 1, 2010


The ‘Newsletter’ of Fianna Fail candidate Tim Cotter in the 1991 Local elections for Kildare County Council, Celbridge LEA. Cotter failed to win a seat.
Plenty in teh Newsletter though. A nice message from Charles J Haughey at the back.
Cotter is pictured canvassing happy looking workers at the INTEL plant. He also has shots with such luminaries as the then Lord Mayor of Dublin Michael Donnelly, Michael O’Kennedy, Bertie Ahern, Mary O’Rourke, Seamus Brennan and Ray Burke. Its a whos who of Fianna Fail at the time.
The boot is put into Labour too over Service Charges.
