From the 1994 European Elections in Dublin, Fine Gael candidate the late Jim Mitchell. Despite his popularity, his colleague Mary Banotti won a seat for Fine Gael.
Mitchell, despite a long career in Politics is remembered by many for his role as chair of the Dail Public Accounts Committee.



Richard Bruton- vote 1 Jim Mitchell and 2 Mary Banotti- European Elections 1994 Dublin December 9, 2009

1994 European Elections, Fianna Fail and Labour are in coalition and Richard Bruton asks voters to vote no 1 Jim Mitchell, No 2 Mary Banotti.
Vote management for General elections in Dublin can be difficult to manage, however the Liffey provides a perfect boundary in European Elections.
Mary Banotti was elected, Jim Mitchell missed out.
The ‘Recent Events’ refered to, could have been anything from the Tax Amnesty to the Beef Tribunal.
