… what you maybe meant to keep…

Andrews, Goulding, Hammond, O’Donoghue Canvass card -Fianna Fail -Dun Laoghaire 1982 June 18, 2010


From the November 1982 General Election a canvass card for Fianna Fail candidates David Andrews, Lady Valerie Goulding, Owen Hammond and Martin O’Donoghue. David Andrews was the only one of them to win a seat.
I probably got this outside the polling station as back then canvassers operated as you went in to vote.
The Card was a smaller version of the Fianna Fail posters festooning the area.

 

Owen Hammond Letter to the Electorate- Fianna Fail- November 1982 GE Dun Laoghaire January 13, 2010


A Letter from Fianna Fail candidate Owen Hammond in the November 1982 General Election where he stood in Dun Laoghaire. The fact that it’s personally signed illustrates the changes over the years…These days it would be a ‘sorry I missed you’ card with the pre printed signature.

Hammond polled 893 votes as Fine Gael won 3 of the 5 seats.
