From the November 1982 General Election a leaflet from Fianna Fail focusing on Crime, with the line “Your Safety is Secure With Fianna Fail”.
Crime of course is one of the main issues that crops up on a regular basis. Fianna Fail ran their 1997 campaign in part on a Zero Tolerance policy to crime.
May well be a key issue at the next election.

Leaflet from Alice Glenn ,John Colgan, Michael Keating- Fine Gael- November 1982 Dublin Central. December 19, 2011


From the November 1982 General Election a leaflet from Fine Gael candidates Alice Glenn, John Colgan and Michael Keating who were running in Dublin Central.
Glenn and Keating were elected. All three candidates ended up running as Independents or in Keatings case The Progressive Democrats. Colgan ran as an Independent in the 1991 local Elections whilst Alice Glenn ran as an Independent in the 1997 General Election.
Glenn was probably most famous for her ‘A Woman Voting for Divorce is like a Turkey voting for Christmas‘ leaflet. I also have her reasons for ‘leaving’ Fine Gael “Why Fine Gael divorced Alice Glenn

Andrews, Goulding, Hammond, O’Donoghue Canvass card -Fianna Fail -Dun Laoghaire 1982 June 18, 2010


From the November 1982 General Election a canvass card for Fianna Fail candidates David Andrews, Lady Valerie Goulding, Owen Hammond and Martin O’Donoghue. David Andrews was the only one of them to win a seat.
I probably got this outside the polling station as back then canvassers operated as you went in to vote.
The Card was a smaller version of the Fianna Fail posters festooning the area.

Owen Hammond Letter to the Electorate- Fianna Fail- November 1982 GE Dun Laoghaire January 13, 2010


A Letter from Fianna Fail candidate Owen Hammond in the November 1982 General Election where he stood in Dun Laoghaire. The fact that it’s personally signed illustrates the changes over the years…These days it would be a ‘sorry I missed you’ card with the pre printed signature.

Hammond polled 893 votes as Fine Gael won 3 of the 5 seats.

 

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)
