From the 1973 Presidential Election a leaflet for Fianna Fail candidate Erskine Childers. Childers, a TD from 1938 until 1973, had spells as Tánaiste , Minister for Posts and Telegraphs, Minister for Transport and Power, Minister for Lands and Minister for Health. The leaflet mentions his work and achievements as a Minister. It also mentions , which is possibly a reflection on the power of television in 1973 that he “has spoken on Irish affairs on virtually every Television Service in Europe and America
It also features a family picture which includes current Labour Party MEP Nessa Childers.
He was elected to the Presidency in this 1973 election, sadly he passed away on the 17th of November 1974 and he was succeeded as President by Cearbhall Ó Dálaigh.

She is the daughter of former president of Ireland Erskine Childers. She resigned her council seat in August 2008 citing pressure of work as a psychoanalyst as her reason.
Less than a year later she surfaced as the Labour European Parliament candidate for the East constituency. She was elected and is now a Labour MEP.
