The Roscommon Hospital Action Committee (H.A.C.) was founded in 1977 and still has a number of councillors (Paula McNamara and Valerie Byrne) in Roscommon today. Eithne Quinn stood for the HAC in the 1987 General Election but failed to be elected. However in 1989 Tom Foxe stood for the HAC and was elected. Below some of his literature from that election. (I have some of his later literature also). He was re-elected for the new constituency on Longford-Roscommon in 1992, however lost his seat in 1997.
Aside from the Hospital issue the Leaflet illustrates some of the issues in the West at the time.
