Easter Rising Centenary leaflet from Seán Haughey -Fianna Fail -Dublin Bay North #ge16 January 25, 2016

An impressive Easter Rising Centenary leaflet from Seán Haughey who is running for Fianna Fail in Dublin Bay North.
The leaflet contains a fascinating account of the activities of Seán Lemass during Easter week 1916. Seán Lemass being the grandfather of Seán Haughey. Aptly enough the leaflet also contains a section “Was your family involved in the events of 1916”.

From ‘This Week’ magazine April 1970 a profile of a pre Arms trial Charles Haughey. In an almost ‘Hello’ type interview and profile that feautures his family, his horses and much more. The question of the sale of house and lands in Raheny to builders is glossed over. Still worth a read.
