From the 1999 Local Elections a leaflet from Johnny Commane and Maeve Spring running for Labour in Tralee. The leaflet also has a message from Dick Spring as well as a message asking voters to back Paula Desmond in the European Elections. Maeve Spring was elected.
Many thanks to the sender.



Don Culloty -Labour Party- Killarney UDC 1999 Local Elections June 16, 2010

From the 1999 local elections a leaflet for Labour candidate Don Culloty running for a seat on Killarney UDC. He polled 138 votes and failed to be elected. I’m curious if he is any relation to former Jockey and now Trainer Jim Culloty.
The leaflet also mentions that Breeda Moynihan Cronin and Andrew McCarthy are running for the County Council, that Sean Counihan is the other Labour candidate for the UDC and that Paula Desmond is running for Europe.
