Letter to Voters from Joseph (Joe) McCormack -Independent -Portlaoise May 23, 2014

A letter to voters from Joe McCormack who is running as an Independent in Portlaoise for a seat on Laois County Council. A veteran of elections Joseph McCormack has been contesting since at least 1979. He was elected to Portlaoise Town Council on at least one occasion. He has always stood as an Independent although in 1987 he stood under the moniker of “The People’s Party of Ireland” .
By the heading on the letter he appears to think that it is a General rather than Local Election.
Many thanks to the sender.

From 1966 a fully filled “Laois Republican Commeration Committee” Easter draw card July 16, 2010


From 1966 a Laois Republican Commemoration Committee Easter Draw card (I assume its a misspelling of commemoration).
The sender notes
Its a fully filled out Republican Easter draw card from 1966 – not sure if someone ever dropped it in for the draw or just made off with money – it was probably someone from Newbridge (or Droichead Nua) as thats where all the addresses are from.

Note that some of the names and addresses are Army men from The Curragh Camp and of course some are care of ‘The Liffey Bar’ in Newbridge.
