Prior to the 1984 European Elections Fianna Fail had a number of Seminars for members on forthcoming European Elections. I’ve included the details of the seminar and some pages from the accompanying booklet. Included are messages from Charles Haughey, Gerry Collins and various details about Fianna Fail rules and the European Parliament.
