1954 General Election flyer for Joseph Pilkington -Independent Republican Labour Candidate, Workers Unemployed, Small Farmer and Old IRA -Sligo Leitrim June 15, 2013


From the 1954 General Election in Sligo/Leitrim a flyer for Joseph Pilkington an Independent Republican Labour Candidate, Workers Unemployed, Small Farmer and Old IRA candidate. He polled 2,710 votes and failed to win a seat.
As far as I know Pilkington was a Sligo Town based Councillor. He was elected to Sligo County Council and Sligo Corporation in 1950 as a Labour candidate and died in 1955. I don’t know why he didn’t stand for Labour here in 1954.
Many thanks to the sender.

Patrick Melly -Conservative and Unionist- Sligo Leitrim -1992 General Election July 22, 2012


From the 1992 General Election a flyer from Patrick Melly… a rarity in the Republic of Ireland in that he was a Unionist candidate.
There is of course a ‘Protestant Vote’ in certain areas of the country, more often than not though its in Local Elections that it manifests itself with the likes of the Donegal Progressive Party and Protestant Association candidates fielded (and elected) in Donegal and Monaghan up until recently.
In 1987 there were 2 ‘Unionist’ candidates in Michael Brooks (running as an Ulster Protestant polled 696 votes in Donegal South West) , Stan Davies (Unionist polling 134 votes in Cork South West) and another candidate Ronald Smith ran in Louth on a ticket demanding Bible readings in the Dail (he got 86 votes).
For the record Melly polled 73 votes in what I think was his only electoral outing.
