From the 1997 General Election a leaflet from then Progressive Democrat Councillor (and now Fine Gael Senator) Cáit Keane urging voters to “Support Cllr Cáit Keane’s campaign to repeal family home tax in Dublin South Central.
At the time she argued that it was ‘unfair’ , ‘Anti-Family’ and ‘Anti-Dublin’.
In this 1997 Election she polled 2,031 votes and failed to win a seat.
Some other Anti Property Tax leaflets from the then….
One from Olivia Mitchell and one from Fine Gael.

“..Property Tax is unfair and inequitable..” Leaflet from Olivia Mitchell -Fine Gael -Dublin South June 5, 2012

Another Anti Property Tax leaflet from Fine Gael in the mid 90s, this time from then Councillor and now TD for Dublin South, Olivia Mitchell.
The line
“This is an ill considered tax with no economic or social objective other than revenue raising for the government at the expense of those already struggling to provide for their families.”
Is as apt today as it was then.

Many thanks to the sender.
