Flyer for the Fine Gael candidates Clonmel Corporation from 1961 May 30, 2016


From I assume 1961 a flyer for the Fine Gael candidates running for Clonmel Corporation. Denis Burke has a Park in Clonmel named after him. There were two different Patrick Fitzgeralds on the ticket along with Edward Gahan, Patrick O’Callaghan, Patrick O’Connor , Martin Slater and Michael White.
I’m not sure which of the candidates were elected although the ‘E’ beside their names may indicate that they were elected.

Flyer from Michael White -The Workers Party -1983 Dublin Central By Election. March 14, 2011


From the 1983 Dublin Central By-Election, caused by the death of George Colley, a flyer for Workers Party candidate Michael White. White, who had stood previously in 1981 and the two Elections in 1982, polled 4,342 votes (13.28% of the poll) in a contest won by Fianna Fails Tom Leonard.
The flyer makes reference to The Workers Party TDs Tomas MacGiolla and Proinsias de Rossa as well as Water Tax.
Michael White is now a judge.

 

Michael White- Workers Party- 1982 (November) January 3, 2010


From the November 1982 General Election, the now Judge Michael White (refered to here as Mick White in the profile). White stood in a number of Elections and despite hard work on the ground had no electoral success.
The Workers Partys achievements are listed as are their plans. We also have the picture Prionsias De Rossa, Paddy Gallagher and Joe Sherlock outside the Dail.

If using any of these images it would be nice to give me some credit for scanning them and posting them up (Unlike the Irish Independent who again used images from the site without crediting me)
