The Workers Party -South Inner City, 1991 Leaflet for Andy Smith and Brian O’Connor February 1, 2021

From the 1991 Local Election Campaign a leaflet from The Workers Party -South Inner City Branch promoting candidates Andy Smith and Brian O’Connor. Running in the South Inner City LEA Brian O’Connor polled 778 votes and Andy Smith 600 votes and both missed out on seats.


Ciaran Cuffe -Green Party -1991 Local Elections -South Inner City September 6, 2010

From the 1991 Local Elections a leaflet for Green Party candidate Ciaran Cuffe running in the South Inner City Ward. Cuffe polled 1,141 votes and was elected comfortably. He retained his seat on Dublin City Council in 1999.
Some nice little bits here. I had forgotten about the proposed Motorway on Clanbrassil Street (Which would probably have the 30 kmh limit now!) also “He is a keen cyclist and has ridden his bicycle coast to coast across the U.S.A.”
Lots of other bibs and bobs about policy and Dublin of the time.
Many thanks to the sender.
