Patrick Connor (Scarteen), Teddy O’Connor, Maurice Traynor -Fine Gael – Killarney -1960 Local Elections January 10, 2014


Two flyers from the 1960 Local Elections in Killarney a flyer for Fine Gael candidates Patrick Connor (Scarteen), Teddy O’Connor and Maurice Traynor and also a sample ballot paper from Patrick Connor (Scarteen). Patrick Connor (Scarteen) was elected.
I’ve also included the results from the election.

The O’Connor Scarteens have been involved in Politics in Kerry since the War of Independence.
4 of them have served on Kerry County Council, contesting and winning every election to Kerry County Council since Fine Gael was founded.
Patrick Connor Scarteen also served in Seanad Eireann and Dail Eireann. His brothers Tom and John were Captain and Brigadier General of the Free State Army until they were killed in their house in Kenmare on 9th September 1922.
In 1976 the O formally removed from the name so they be higher up the ballot paper.

There’s a piece on the family and politics here

Many thanks to the sender.

From the 2009 Local Elections the Manifesto for Michael Gleeson of The South Kerry Independent Alliance (SKIA). Gleeson was running for both Kerry County Council and Killarney County Council and was elected to both.
