Leaflet from Barbara Hyland- NLJAG /Independent -1989 General Election November 8, 2009


Barbara Hyland has stood multiple times in multiple elections, most notably in 1987 where she along with four other candidates stood for the National Legal Justice Action Group. NLJAG were campaigning against the Law Society, or rather the staus of the Law society as the ‘only avenue of complaint’ if you had ‘Suffered at the hands of the legal profession’.
They wanted an independent ombudsman.
She stood in 13 constituencies top vote of 217 in her home of Wicklow, lowest 33 in Dublin North West.

This is from 1989 where she stood in just Kerry South and Wicklow. She stood again in 1992, 1997 and 2002.  She has various newspaper clips in the leaflet which may give you a better idea as to her motives.

She had stood previously in the Local Elections for Labour.
