Tony Gregory-1991 Local Elections January 20, 2010

This the Late Tony Gregorys Leaflet from the 1991 Local Elections (From my own collection I see that Tony Gregory used this style leaflet for the 1985 Local Elections as well as the 1987,1989 and 1992 General elections so they can be confusing to date) .  In it he mentions support of the Postal Workers who went on Strike in 1991.

One of his major issues, especially in the 80s and 90s, was that when developments were taking place in the area , local labour was not often enough employed, this is referenced here with regard to the Custom House scheme.  The small bit about ‘ …strongly  supports Tax relief for mortgage holders’ .. is a rebuttal of a constant issue that was used to attack the left, and scare the middle classes, at the time. Labour also came in for the same treatment in 1991 and the 1992 General election (an example) .

Tony Gregory is also pictured with the Street Traders, fighting for their rights he ended up in Mountjoy. His record as a founder member of the Concerned Parents is there also.



Finian McGrath -Independent – Dublin North Central -1992 GE January 12, 2010

Finian McGrath from his first General Election in 1992 where he gained 764 votes. His vote in the 1997 GE increased and in 1999 he won a seat on Dublin City Council.
He was Elected to the Dail in 2002 when standing as part of the Independents Health Alliance.
His record as a fighter for the rights of the vulnerable is listed here as is his emphasis on Jobs and Health.



Vincent Ballyfermot Jackson -Dublin South Central 2002 December 14, 2009

In the past 20 years Dublin has had two Lord Mayors which have changed their names to include a locality, Sean Dublin Bay Loftus and Vicent Ballyfermot Jackson.
This is a Jacksons flyer from the 2002 General Election. A good deal of it is taken up with a message from Tony Gregory.
Jacksons Ballyfermot base has been moved between \Dublin West, Dublin Central and Dublin South Central over the recent past.


Tony Gregory- 1999 local elections November 5, 2009

The last local elections that the late Tony Gregory stood in. Gives a good illustration of his work since being initially elected in 1979.




Tony Gregory Letter to Constituents 08 /Maureen O’Sullivan 09 September 29, 2009

This was sent to me by the wonderfully helpful Maureen O’Sullivan.  Its over a year on from the letter and 9 months since Tonys Passing on the 2nd of January. I gather it was his last communication with all his constituents. Gracious and humble as ever.

Maureen O’Sullivans literature has the same picture of herself and the Late Tony Gregory as that on the Gregory Leaflet.




Leaflet from Tony Gregory -1985 Local Elections -North Inner City September 23, 2009

The late Tony Gregory spent 25 years in the Dail, yet it was for “The Gregory Deal” in his first term that many remember him most for. He was an avid community activist and worker, staunchly anti drugs and was jailed for his stand with the Street traders. This leaflet is from the 1985 Local elections.
