Irish Election Literature

… what you maybe meant to keep…

Leaflet from the 1954 General Election January 22, 2010

Another item received from a most kind donor.  The prices are in old old money and from brief calculations the increases are bad.
Amongst the things to go up in price were Cigarettes (can you imagine any party giving out about that now) and the Wireless licence. The bread in the picture is what looks like a batch loaf (none of your sliced pans back then!) and all the other staples of tea, butter, flour, sugar and porter are there too. 

I actually don’t know what party issued this though, other than it mustn’t have been Fianna Fail.  I presume it’s from the 1954 General Election also.
Any ideas?
