The Hazel Tree Seeds ‘Brown Envelope Campaign’ -Ruairi Holohan -Green Party -Blackrock 2009 LE July 12, 2010

From the 2009 Local Elections in Blackrock, a packet of Hazel Tree seeds from Green Party candidate Ruairi Holohan. The seeds were given out as part of the ‘Brown Envelope Campaign’.
A clever device and a decent intention… but not enough to get him elected as he lost his seat. He polled 809 votes.
I wonder how many Hazel Trees were planted?
