From 2001 Richard Bruton -Yes to Nice, Yes to Abolition of the Death Penalty, Yes to The International Criminal Court April 3, 2013

From 2001 a leaflet from Fine Gaels Richard Bruton looking for a Yes vote in the Nice Referendum, A Yes vote for the Referendum on the Abolition of the Death Penalty and A Yes Vote to membership of The International Criminal Court.
The leaflet also has a message from the then Fine Gael leader Michael Noonan.
This Nice Treaty Referendum was rejected by voters (and later re run) and the Death Penalty and International Criminal Court Referenda were passed.
Many thanks to the sender.



“See the difference -You can check the record” -Richard Bruton 1997 Election Leaflet with the Rainbow Governments record January 1, 2011

From the 1997 General Election a glossy leaflet produced by Fine Gael candidate Richard Bruton with details of the Rainbow Governments achievements. It was illustrated at both the National and The local level. It gives an idea of where we were at in 1997 and how in hindsight it was an awful pity that the Rainbow government was not returned.
The outgoing Minister for Enterprise and Employment was easily elected.

Search for Richard Bruton ….. and you get a “Gilmore For Taoiseach” Sponsored Link…
Labour are hardly rubbing it in about the failed heave are they? … considering Richard Brutons chances of being Taoiseach were dashed…


Richard Bruton ‘Seeking Your Support’ -Fine Gael-1992 GE Dublin North Central June 15, 2010

A Richard Bruton leaflet from the 1992 General Election where he is running in Dublin North Central.
It felt apt to post considering Richard Bruton is currently seeking the support of party colleagues.
As often is the case many of the issues in the leaflet are still with us.



Richard Bruton- vote 1 Jim Mitchell and 2 Mary Banotti- European Elections 1994 Dublin December 9, 2009

1994 European Elections, Fianna Fail and Labour are in coalition and Richard Bruton asks voters to vote no 1 Jim Mitchell, No 2 Mary Banotti.
Vote management for General elections in Dublin can be difficult to manage, however the Liffey provides a perfect boundary in European Elections.
Mary Banotti was elected, Jim Mitchell missed out.
The ‘Recent Events’ refered to, could have been anything from the Tax Amnesty to the Beef Tribunal.


Richard Bruton 1992 – ‘A Fresh Start’ and Letter to constituents. September 17, 2009

This is a Richard Bruton Leaflet and a letter to constituents from the 1992 General Election.

In the Middle part of the first leaflet we see  ‘reforming Fas’, tax benefits on third level fees  and so on. Would the job creation ideas of 17 years ago work again?
