Leaflet from Alice Glenn ,John Colgan, Michael Keating- Fine Gael- November 1982 Dublin Central. December 19, 2011

From the November 1982 General Election a leaflet from Fine Gael candidates Alice Glenn, John Colgan and Michael Keating who were running in Dublin Central.
Glenn and Keating were elected. All three candidates ended up running as Independents or in Keatings case The Progressive Democrats. Colgan ran as an Independent in the 1991 local Elections whilst Alice Glenn ran as an Independent in the 1997 General Election.
Glenn was probably most famous for her ‘A Woman Voting for Divorce is like a Turkey voting for Christmas‘ leaflet. I also have her reasons for ‘leaving’ Fine Gael “Why Fine Gael divorced Alice Glenn

Wonder did the electors know you had your picture taken with Alice Glenn and Michael Keating 10 years earlier though?
