Happened upon this 1999 press release from Ivor Callely where he urges a ‘Tattooing and piercing info campaign’
Ivor Callely urging a ‘Tattooing and Piercing info campaign’ -From 1999 September 10, 2010
From the 2009 local elections Ivor Callelys newsletter. Its a promo for himself and his son Ronan Callely who was running for Dublin City Council in the Clontarf ward. Callely junior wasn’t elected.
The contents of the newsletter , given recent revelations, is somewhat ironic.
“There are many individuals and families that need help now” writes Ivor before continuing “I want to send a clear message, no one is alone in their personal difficulties, help and support is out there.”
On Savings and Investments Ivor suggests ‘you seek professional advice before you make any decision.’ Difficulties with Mortgages are also covered.
There is a section on ‘HOW TO COPE THROUGH DIFFICULTIES‘
There are tips from Callely junior on ‘Looking for a job‘, There is also mentions of “Money Advice and Budgeting Service (MABS)”
the final call is one for Ivor to organise ‘House Meetings‘, ‘The impact of the current difficulties is real and the answer to our difficulties is not beyond our reach.’

Enid O’Dowd -Green Alliance -Pembroke 1985 Local Elections February 24, 2010
From the 1985 local elections, the Green Party candidate for the Pembroke Ward, Enid O’Dowd.
Enid O’Dowd polled well but with the likes of well established community activist Carmencita Hederman on the ballot paper it was unlikely she would get in. The Green Party won a seat in Pembroke in the 1991 local Elections through Claire Wheeler.
More recently Enid O’Dowd has been doing some great work on Oireachtas expenses with a number of articles in the Irish Times and an appearance on Liveline.
