Flyer for Pat Carey , Noel Ahern -Fianna Fail- 1997 GE Dublin North West January 5, 2011

From 1997 a flyer for Noel Ahern “Brother of Bertie Ahern Leader of Fianna Fail” and Pat Carey running for Fianna Fail in Dublin North West.
Both were easily elected with Noel Ahern getting over 1.5 quotas. He has since also been elected on the first count in 2002 and 2007.
Pat Carey hasn’t really aged much since.

The then Taoiseach, Bertie Aherns, brother Noel Ahern from the 1997 General Election where he topped the polled getting over 1.5 quotas.


‘Nothing at the End of the Rainbow- Shame on Them!” Pat Carey-FF DubNW 97 October 5, 2009

A very aggressive looking leaflet from Pat Carey in 1997.   Oddly enough its similar in colour to the Good Friday Agreement leaflet that went to each house.

The web address at the end of the leaflet was fairly hard to remember too. That campaign featured some fairly negative leaflets from Fianna Fail and wonderfully positive oness from the Rainbow parties. Some of the language is Haugheyesque “Fianna Fail… have never  failed to provide for Dublin North West”…
