Irish Election Literature

… what you maybe meant to keep…

Priorities Party – St Lukes Leaflet -2008 January 28, 2010

Many thanks to the donor. The Priorites Party (known also as the The Peoples’ Accountability, Transparency and Standards Party?) were short lived, one of the founders Leo Armstrong is listed as an Independent in the 2009 Local Elections in Clane, although I don’t know if he was standing for the Priorities Party or not.
The party is now defunct.
I have another leaflet from them posted HERE.


Michael Gleeson – South Kerry Independent Alliance (SKIA) 2009 October 7, 2009

Another small party – The South Kerry Independent Alliance (SKIA).  Its been running since 1995 at least. As far as I know, ex Kerry footballer, Michael Gleeson has been its only successful candidate to date.

South Kerry Independent Alliance was formed by ex Labour members in South Kerry, Gleeson is a former Labour Party member. This is just a flyer I shall put up the full SKIA doc in due course.


Áine Ní Chonaill- Immigration Control Platform 2002 Dublin South Central. September 25, 2009

Áine Ní Chonaill was one of the first people to come out and publicly question immigration. The ICP is vehemently anti asylum seeker and felt that Ireland was easy for them to get Asylum.

 These two leaflets are as vile as you will come across…. (In Ireland anyhow)



Communist Party Of Ireland (Marxist-Leninist)- ‘Marxist-Leninist Weekly’ Feb 3rd 1988 September 22, 2009

A copy of Marxist-Leninist Weekly from 3rd Feb 1988. Hits out at Britain and also Israeli Zionism. I’m not sure if this is the full version of the paper or a smaller pamphlet (Tabloid!) version of that weeks edition.

I can only presume that the group organizing the advertised Rally and march to the British Embassy ,”The Spirit of Freedom Committee” was the CPI-ML in ‘disguise’. A theme that runs through a lot of the Irish Left literature I have and I’d imagine internationally.

Peadar O’Grady -Socialist Workers Party- 1997 GE Dublin South East September 16, 2009

The 1997 General Election was the first time the SWP put forward candidates to contest an Irish election. It fielded four candidates- Ritchie Browne, Peadar O’Grady, Brid Smith  in Dublin constituencies and Jimmy Kelly in Waterford.

Peadar O’Grady ran in Dublin South East. They use being Anti Corruption to try and attract voters rather than advertising that they are a ‘revolutionary socialist group’.
