From the run up to the 1983 Abortion Referendum a leaflet from the The Anti Amendment Campaign outlining their reasons for opposing the holding of a Referendum. It has the founding statement of the Campaign as well as a list of public figures and groups that backed the campaign.
Many thanks to the sender.
From 1957 “Export of Horses and the General Election”-Irish National Campaign against the Export of Horses for Slaughter August 22, 2011
From the 1957 General Election campaign “Export of Horses and the General Election” from the Irish National Campaign against the Export of Horses for Slaughter.
This group wanted an abattoir to be set up here for the killing of ‘redundant horses’ as it would eliminate cruelty and create jobs. Amongst the candidates listed as supporting the abattoir were Noel Browne, Sean McBride and Jack Lynch.
I’m not sure if an abattoir for ‘redundant horses’ was ever set up.
From 1989 “Why we think you should vote for Michael D.” – Mick Lally, Emmet Bergin and Noel Browne June 20, 2011
From the 1989 General Election in Galway West an Ad for Michael D Higgins with endorsements from Mick Lally, Emmet Bergin and Noel Browne, “Why we think you should vote for Michael D.” A big thing then to be endorsed by two actors from Glenroe. In Ireland it is unusual to see public figures backing Dail candidates.
Michael D held on to his seat polling 7,727 votes.
In 1987 he had a similar ad with endorsements from Mary Coughlan, Mick Lally and Noel Browne.
“Why We Think You Should Vote For Michael D.” -Mick Lally, Noel Browne, Mary Coughlan- 1987 GE January 8, 2011
Found this recently, an ad from the 1987 General Election Campaign with three people very much associated with Galway at the time, the late Mick Lally, the late Noel Browne and singer Mary Coughlan asking for a vote for Michael D.
“Why We Think You Should Vote For Michael D.”
