‘They’ve Blown It! FF/PD Government Squander 5 Golden Years’ -Gavin Doyle, Michael Joe Cosgrave -Fine Gael 2002 GE Dublin North East October 7, 2010

From the 2002 General Election a Fine Gael leaflet for candidates Gavin Doyle and Michael Joe Cosgrave running in Dublin North East.
The headline being ‘They’ve Blown It! FF/PD Government Squander five Golden Years’
It goes on to detail inaction in Health, Crime, Traffic and the LUAS as well as Fine Gael achievements in the Rainbow Government.
Neither Doyle or Cosgrave (who lost his seat) were elected.

Muriel O Tiarnaigh -Fine Gael -1985 Local Elections -Howth August 19, 2010

From the 1985 Local elections a letter to voters from Fine Gael candidate Muriel O Tiarnaigh. Muriel O Tiarnaigh failed to get in. I think her colleagues Michael Joe Cosgrave and Joan Maher were elected.
Muriels husband the late Riocard O Tiarnaigh was well known in sailing circles and there is a race the ‘Riocard O’ Tiarnaigh Challenge’ named after him.
Muriel was a member of the influential Womens Political Association.
